Wildact Vietnam announce that we are joining force with the Saola Working Group to provide a small grant to support capacity building of women in Vietnam and Laos for biodiversity conservation and sustainability in the Annamite Mountains.
Recognizing that in Indochina ‘forest’ (i.e., conservation) work is traditionally considered suitable mainly for men, and therefore that encouragement and support of women in such work can tap a valuable resource, the Saola Working Group is providing funds to Vietnamese and Lao women (no restriction of age, or education level) involved in biodiversity conservation in the Annamite Mountains.
- The grant will support women in their endeavors to contribute to biodiversity conservation in the Annamites Range
- The grant can be used for conservation/research projects, to support to women from local communities, and for training courses and/or academic scholarships
- The grant will be awarded to women from Laos or Vietnam (this includes women from ethnic minorities in the Annamite Mountain Range)
- Projects funded may include (but are not limited to): research; community outreach; sustainable livelihoods with a demonstrable and direct link to conservation; capacity building (incl. training courses) linked to conservation; academic studies.
- Any project must demonstrate a direct link to conservation
- Maximum grants are 5000 USD (smaller amounts have a higher chance of being awarded
