The Roy A. Hunt Foundation has announced the International Development Program to improve the socio-economic welfare and holistic well-being of women and children living in poverty in developing countries.

a) Address root cause issues of inequity and lack of female empowerment.
b) Support women social entrepreneurs.
c) Include a community-driven approach to problem solving and program implementation—with programs designed by people with proximity to the issues.
d) Consider holistic models and multi-faceted approaches for woman and girls acknowledging that a woman’s health and well-being will be in jeopardy unless she has, for example, a home.
e) Empower community-based organizations that are already doing the work and where a small amount of funding can unleash significant change.

Eligibility Criteria:
1. Geographies
Countries in sub-Saharan Africa or Southeast Asia that are rebuilding after economic collapse, war, natural disaster, and / or political strife, and whose residents live in extreme poverty (e.g. Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Myanmar).
2. Types of Organizations / Projects
a) Community-driven organizations where they are able to adequately assess risk (e.g. via partnerships, local partners, or experts on the ground).
