The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) is a leading global grant-making mechanism exclusively dedicated to addressing violence against women and girls in all its forms. It supports effective initiatives that demonstrate that violence against women and girls can be systematically addressed, reduced and, with persistence, eliminated. Each year, the UN Trust Fund launches and widely publicizes its Call for Proposals, soliciting applications focusing on addressing all forms of violence against women and girls. Ensuring that the core principles of an open, fair, transparent, competitive and merit-based process are maintained, the UN Trust Fund makes the Call for Proposals available in six languages, and solicits applications in English, French and Spanish. To date, the UN Trust Fund has delivered US$ 95 million to 368 initiatives in 132 countries and territories.
