Description: "Of the over 30,000 NGOs registered in the country, less than 10 per cent are classified as working on women's issues. Of the 123 NGOs registered in the country, only 10 are specifically supporting work on women's rights. INGOs and donors are the primary source of funding for work related to women's human rights being promoted by non-state actors. Funding for women's rights-related work is not declining as such, but the funding priorities, patterns and mechanisms are skewed. Also, recent focus on 'outcomes' and 'results' has led to quantitative focus of interventions rather than qualitative. Not all women's organisations and groups face similar challenges and obstacles. In general, large organisations (with large budgets), based out of the capital city, with highly trained staff and capacities in writing good quality proposals in English seem to have an advantage over smaller organisations based outside of the centre"
