Girls and young feminist activists are at the forefront of resistance lines in all shades and magnitudes – countering authoritarianism, challenging discrimination, and leading some of the most powerful social justice movements. This is dedicated 2-year funding to build political power, counter authoritarianism and hold democratic institutions to account.
Purposeful, in partnership with FCDO, presents MOVE, a new participatory grantmaking programme putting a diverse group of female survivor-leaders and feminist activists at the centre of programming and decision-making to tackle sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in Sierra Leone.

Black artists and activists have to jump through too many hoops to get resources that could help them do their best work and change the world. Late last year, I received a letter from Purposeful, a feminist hub for girl- activism rooted in Africa, informing me that I had been selected as a recipient of its inaugural Feminist Scholar Award of $50 000.
Purposeful is pleased to share that it has signed up to the UN Global Compact, a global commitment to do business responsibly, aligning strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We are also committed to taking strategic action to advance broader societal goals, collaborating and innovating with others to advance the SDGs. Read our statement of commitment here.
