The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016.

The UN Trust Fund enters its third decade of grant giving buoyed by a unique body of knowledge and experience in developing effective funding strategies to counter violence against women and girls and an ever-broader base of partners and supporters and with an undiminished ambition to increase support for the essential and ground-breaking initiatives taken forward by grantees large and small addressing violence against women and girls in all its forms.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the UN Trust Fund, SeeMe, a fair trade company, has launched a signature Orange Heart necklace. Made by women survivors of violence in Tunisia. The necklaces symbolize a bright future free from violence for women and girls. Proceeds from sales will benefit projects supported by the UN Trust Fund.
