Early Grant Information for NGOs

Rainbow Advocacy Program (RAP) is a unique opportunity for underrepresented LGBTIQ activists from the Global South and East to learn, network, collaborate and gain hands-on experience in UN advocacy.

Each cycle of the program is divided into three phases: an intensive training coinciding with a UN advocacy forum, a follow-on advocacy project, and a final convening during another high-level advocacy forum. A mentorship component of the program will enable participants to have continuous access to expertise during the implementation period of the advocacy project.
