USAID Women Connect Challenge

USAID Women Connect Challenge

Add To Cart

The WomenConnect Challenge is a global call for solutions to improve women's participation in everyday life by meaningfully changing the ways women and girls access and use technology. USAID seeks to identify and accelerate comprehensive solutions that empower women and girls to access and use digital technology to drive positive health, education, and livelihood outcomes for themselves and their families.

The main themes:

1.    Women’s access to technology is not an end, but a means to help address development objectives.

2.    There is a need to build evidence for approaches that are working.

3.    The scope of the digital gender divide requires local solutions that take into account complex cultural and socioeconomic factors.


The WomenConnect Challenge is open to registered US or non-US organizations regardless of type. Individuals are eligible to apply with demonstrated organizational partnerships. Government entities are not eligible to apply. All Applicants must use WomenConnect funds to implement a solution in a country with USAID presence.
