Each year the Rights Now foundation selects a theme that highlights our current priority. To qualify, all projects and applications should relate to this particular theme, in addition to the foundation’s overall vision and objectives. Only projects and applications that fall within the stated theme of the application period will be considered by the foundation.
The theme for the current (or relevant) application period is:
This year’s theme 2023: Health and rights – LGBTQI
All people, regardless of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other position, must have the opportunity to be included in social, economic and political life. It doesn’t look like that everywhere. Rights Now foundation wants to ensure that all people´s human rights are met and to promote equal health for all.
This year we choose to focus especially on projects targeting they who identify as gay, bisexual, transgender, people with queer expressions and identities and intersex people.
Describe in your application how your project is connected to the target group and goal 10 (10.2 or 10.3) of the global sustainability goals.
10.2 By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.
10.3 Ensure equal opportunity and reduce inequalities of outcome, including by eliminating discriminatory laws, policies and practices and promoting appropriate legislation, policies and action in this regard.
The decision regarding grant funding is made in January each year.
