UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women
In 2008, thanks to individuals like you, Governments and the private sector, more than $22 million in grants was awarded—an all-time high. However, the current financial crisis is taking its toll here too. Please do what you can—let your friends know too.
UN TRUST FUND
The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) was established by General Assembly resolution 50/166 in 1996 and is managed by UN Women on behalf of the UN system. The UN Trust Fund is a global multilateral grant-making mechanism that supports local and national efforts to end violence against women and girls.
Since its establishment in 1996, the UN Trust Fund has supported 339 programmes in 127 countries and territories with over US$ 78 million. Grantees, comprising government and non-governmental organizations, have engaged diverse actors, such as women’s, men’s and youth groups and networks; indigenous communities; religious and traditional leaders; human rights organizations; academic and research organizations; and the media.
Won’t you help? Every contribution is vital. Every dollar tells women and girls who experience violence that they are not forgotten. Donate online or if you are in the United States text UNITE to 27722 from your cell phone to give $10.*
This initiative is made possible through the UN Foundation.
