About this grant

The Women’s Hope, Education and Training (WHEAT) Trust was established in 1998 to support women-led community-based organizations in South Africa. It makes grants and provides training to help organizations respond effectively to the needs in their communities. Previous support enabled the grantee to make grants, host fundraising events, conduct workshops for its grantees, and run awareness campaigns on pressing issues affecting the poor and marginalized in communities across South Africa. This grant will support the grantee to continue implementing similar activities.
