USAID Egypt – Ending Violence against Women and Girls Activity

The United States Agency for International Development’s Mission in Egypt (USAID/Egypt) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the Ending Violence against Women and Girls Activity.

To achieve the overarching goal of working to end violence against women and girls, the Ending Violence against Women and Girls Activity will focus on two approaches:

  1. prevention by supporting positive social norm change to end violence against women and girls through local and national outreach efforts; promoting targeted community-led initiatives and strengthening the implementation of legal and policy framework criminalizing violence against women and girls, and
  2. response by expanding access to quality integrated violence against women and girls services and responsive interventions such as medical, psycho-social, and legal support through building the capacity of first responders and supporting an integrated referral mechanism for all victims of violence against women and girls.

The Activity responds to the U.S. Government’s and the Government of Egypt’s (GOE) shared policy priorities on gender equality and female empowerment.

Program activities:

Violence against women and girls is a multi-sectoral issue that will benefit from integration into health and education sector activities. Notably, there is a growing recognition in Egypt of the magnitude and impact of violence and of the need to strengthen the response across sectors. The Activity will improve the capacity of stakeholders and sectors of society to address these challenges and participate in decision-making to advance women’s and girls’ rights.

The Activity will also provide effective strategies to promote positive social norm change to end violence against women and girls through local and national outreach efforts. It will increase access to and strengthen support for referral systems and integrated services for survivors, including access to medical, psycho-social, and legal support, access to productive resources, shelter, reintegration, and follow-up.

The Activity will target specific sectors where violence against women is more prevalent, which could include interventions in targeted employment sectors or domestic workers, for example.

Activity Framework:

The proposed activity responds to the U.S. Government and the GOE’s shared policy priorities on gender equality and female empowerment, as well as USAID/Egypt’s commitment to reduce all forms of violence against women and girls, including female genital mutilation and/or cutting, child early and forced marriage, and Trafficking in Persons and improve the public participation of females.

Eligible Applicants:

Eligibility for this NOFO is not restricted. USAID/Egypt welcomes applications from organizations that have not previously received financial assistance from USAID.


Closing Date: May 2, 2023 Closing Time: 4:00 p.m. Cairo local time

Total Program Funding: $15,000,000
