About this grant

The Women’s Budget Initiative – a project of the Institute for Democracy in South Africa, initiated with the Community Agency for Social Enquiry and the Parliamentary Committee on the Improvement of the Quality of Life and Status of Women – was created to conduct research and provide training on how to ensure that issues of gender are reflected in government budgets, particularly at the local level. Funding will support a comprehensive evaluation of the initiative to aid the institute in future programming. Activities will include designing the framework of the evaluation; examining published research and training; gathering information through interviews with people involved with the project; analyzing and reporting on the findings; and hosting a workshop for staff of the initiative.
