- BY Nicole Pelette
The Ecumenical Women’s Initiative (EWI) is inviting proposals for the Project Support Grants Program. The EWI is a non-governmental, non-profit making organisation which supports women as initiators and agents of change in faith communities and in society by supporting and connecting individuals and groups working in the fields of women’s rights, peace building and reconciliation, belief-based ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue & cooperation in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, encouraging networking and cross border cooperation.
The EWI seeks to shape its work, approaches and relationships according to the following set of values:
Equality: They believe that God created all people equal and that women and men have the right to equal opportunities regardless of their nationality, ethnic affiliation or religious belief, gender or sex or any other characteristic.
Solidarity: They stand primarily alongside all women in their current situation of injustice as they strive to contribute to a just and peaceful society.
Pluralism: They respect culture and custom, ethnic, religious and national diversity.
Non-violence: They promote the affirmation of their values and respect of others as a precondition to peaceful coexistence and the constructive transformation of conflict.
Objective: Develop structured responses to the challenges faced by women, in line with EWI areas of interest.
Proposed projects must comply with one of the following areas:
