HAVE YOUR SAY
Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Mama Cash supports "groundbreaking" and "innovative" projects from womens groups and womens organisations all over the world. Criteria for applications includes:
* "...projects that are aimed at groups of women who are relegated to a marginal position within a certain context, for example: girls, women of colour, migrant and refugee women, HIV/AIDS infected women, indigenous women, sex workers, lesbians and women with a disability;
* projects that are avant-garde where form and content are concerned; and
* projects that contain a risky and "ground-breaking" element."
Applications for The Netherlands and Europe as well as the Global South (Asia and the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean) and the former Soviet Union, can be submitted throughout the entire year. Applications must be completed in Dutch, English, French or Spanish. Mama Cash will only assess applications that meet her criteria and are properly completed. There are two types of application forms: subsidies and travel grants.
Four times a year Mama Cash assesses the submitted applications. After each meeting, applicants will be informed about the councils decision. The entire application procedure may take three to six months.
The average grant ranges from 500 euros to 20,000 euros per year.
