About the Organization

Advancing research to end violence against women and violence against children in low- and middle-income countries

The SVRI is one of the largest global networks for advancing research on violence against women, violence against children and other forms of gender-based violence. Founded in 2003, the SVRI brings together a diverse group of actors aiming to achieve a world free of violence against women and violence against children through improved practices and prevention programmes informed by evidence, with a focus on low and middle-income countries. We do this through building evidence, strengthening research capacity, promoting partnerships and influencing change. Our work is guided by the  SVRI’s Strategic Plan 2020 – 2024. We are a feminist, women-led, non-profit organisation under South African law (SVRI NPC 2019/197466/08).

About the Grant

The Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) is inviting applications for innovative research that will contribute to the prevention and response of violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC) and other forms of violence driven by gender inequality in low and middle-income countries.

SVRI grant-making is grounded in feminist principles and acknowledges and addresses imbalanced power dynamics between donors and researchers as well as in partnerships between high-income and low- and middle-income countries, and within countries and between researchers and practitioners. The SVRI calls for research that is priority driven and impactful and exemplifies equitable research partnerships and processes that promote the leadership of low- and middle-income country-based researchers.

The SVRI has been grant making in different ways since 2012. In 2013 we formally launched the SVRI Grant, and in 2015-2020, we created a pooled fund with the World Bank Group and Wellspring Philanthropic Fund, where we co-funded the SVRI WBG Development Marketplace Awards. In 2021 we partnered with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Wellspring Philanthropic Fund to establish the SVRI Research Grant: Knowledge for Action to End Violence Against Women and Violence Against Children.
