Grant Management Unit (GMU)

The Grant Management Unit implements a Basket Fund (BF) for MOs access which was established in 2003. The fund is meant to help in uplifting the living standards of women both in urban and rural areas. The BF operates as a semi-autonomous entity under an independent and impartial Grant Management Committee (GMC) while the NGOCC Board plays a supervisory role. The major focus of the BF is to disburse funds to member organizations on the basis of viable and sustainable project proposals with a focus on women’s empowerment. The Unit is also responsible for carrying out relevant capacity building interventions of member organisations to effectively implement gender and development programmes with funding from the Basket. This programme is a cross cutting unit through all the pillars in the strategic plan.
