About this grant

The Pitseng Trust was established in 1998 by women in Johannesburg who were inspired by Mama Cash in the Netherlands and the Global Fund for Women. As a dedicated women’s fund, the grantee’s major goal is to support and build the capacity of local women’s organizations, especially those working on women’s economic development through grantmaking, training, and capacity building. Since its establishment, it has made a number of small grants to women-led, community-based organizations. This grant will provide support to the grantee to continue to address its many challenges and to establish itself as an effective women’s grantmaking organization.
