- Action: FRIDA is committed to engaging young feminist-led groups in the grant-making and decision process. We view this as an empowering process that provides participants with greater accountability and investment in our shared work. We are the only youth-led fund that has a participatory grantmaking model which ensures young feminist activists who apply for grants decide together who will receive funding. FRIDA is the first to apply this model in a global context.
