The UN Trust Fund has created several partnerships with the private sector to raise funds and awareness using the colour orange. Many of these partnerships also provide sustainable and ethical economic opportunities for women to promote economic empowerment and end the cycle of violence.

The UN Trust Fund is currently in partnership with:

UN Women for Peace Association

UN Women for Peace Association (UNWFPA) was founded in 2008 under the patronage of Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of the former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The organization envisions a world where women and girls have equal opportunities, access to education and freedom to live in peace.

UNWFPA is proud to support the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. In March, UNWFP will hold their annual MARCH IN MARCH which raises awareness and encourages governments to make women's issues a priority.
