The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against women is seeking proposals to support national efforts to end one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. The fund is administered by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) on behalf of the United Nations System.
The Fund’s mission is to advocate for and finance innovative and replicable approaches for preventing and ending violence against women and girls, to catalyze learning from global evidence collected from the projects it funds, and to leverage its unique mandate and convening power to foster global giving for ending violence against women and girls (EVAW/G).
Special attention will be paid to applications from women’s rights, women-led, and small organizations (including youth organizations) in recognition of the contribution these make to reaching women and girls at the grassroots level. Attention will also be paid to those targeting the most under-served groups (such as women and girls with disabilities, LBT, internally displaced and refugees, indigenous, older women and members of ethnic minorities)
- Human rights-based and gender-responsive approaches that place paramount priority on promoting, protecting and fulfilling the human rights of all women and girls, as well as strengthening institutional capacities at local and national levels to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.
- Focus on impact, specific and measurable results which make a concrete difference in lives of women and girls.
- Holistic and multi-sectoral responses that address women and girl’s inter-related rights and needs in terms of prevention and response to violence, including safety and protection, access to health, legal, property and inheritance rights, and economic security and rights.
- Focus on underserved groups, especially excluded or disadvantaged women and girls (such as women and girls with disabilities, LBT, internally displaced and refugees, indigenous, older and members of ethnic minorities), ensuring responsiveness to diversity.
- Coordination and partnership-building, including among government entities, civil society organizations, especially women-led and small organization, women’s specialist service providers and EVAW thematic networks.
- Commitment to sharing knowledge, by documenting, monitoring, evaluating and disseminating results.
- Evidence-based programming, building on documented research, lessons learned and recommended practices, to ensure optimal results and use of resources.
