PDF – 2015 – This publication traces the evolution of New Field Foundation’s efforts to support peace and vibrant rural communities in southern Senegal as it emerged from twenty years of conflict. Between 2004 and 2014, New Field’s grantmaking program evolved organically to support the emergence of rural women’s organizations as drivers of development. Making grants in a post-conflict environment to women’s organizations that have historically been passed over by other development efforts was challenging. It required creativity, flexibility and a multi-dimensional approach.
It is New Field’s hope that this publication will help other funders effect transformational change by investing in rural women’s community organizations. When done well, the impact of such funding is significant, tangible, and inspiring.
