The Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR) s a Quaker organization supported primarily by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the US.

RSWR:
a) supports income-generating, self-employment projects for poor women who are members of a self-help group;
b) is seeking applications to provide seed grants to small grassroots organizations to implement women-led, income-generating projects in south India (Tamil Nadu and the districts of Chittoor, Cuddapah, Anantapur, and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh).

The project must include a revolving loan component. It believes that small scale income-generating projects offer a means of establishing self-sufficiency to very poor people.
By requiring that the project include a revolving loan program, they can multiple the impact of their grant as the funds are revolved many times to many different women within the community.

Funding information: Up to US $5,500 for a one year project. Projects are funded one year at a time.

Utilize This Offer

RSWR strives to help newer, smaller organizations whose budgets may not allow them to receive grants from other sources.
NGOs must be less than 20 years old and have annual budgets of less than $16,500
Next deadline: December 31, 2019
