SAWF’s Small Grants Programme is aimed at supporting women’s groups and activists, especially those working at the grassroots, to undertake innovative, cutting edge and critical work. Apart from supporting specific initiatives/programmes, the SGP also supports participation of activists in critical spaces, training programmes and workshops through small travel grants. The maximum limit of the grant amount is 5000 USD per organization/individual, and needs to be utilized within a year.

- Innovative initiatives that have the cutting edge potential of being up-scaled.
- A specific component of a planned programme for which additional resources are needed, building on an unexpected outcome/spin offs of previous initiatives.
- Responding to an unexpected critical need/demand of women communities.
- Undertaking a pilot project, baseline research, public event or a needed publication that can address future needs.
