15 Years of the United Nations Trust Fund

To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, and in tribute to grassroots activists around the world who are at the forefront of the efforts to end the pandemic of violence, theUnited Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) today announced its new global Call for Proposals to support country-level programmes to end violence against women and girls.

This year’s Call for Proposals marks the UN Trust Fund’s 15th anniversary. “The fifteen years of the UN Trust Fund have shown us what works to end violence against women,” said Michelle Bachelet, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women. “Change is possible, and the strategies and innovations that have developed with support from the UN Trust Fund are a strong testament to the fact that we are at a unique moment in history to put an end to violence against women. It is time to translate this momentum into reality for women and girls, and their communities and nations.” Read more »
