In 2021, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) marks its 25th anniversary: 25 years of grant-giving, support and commitment to strengthening civil society organizations and women’s movements. In its 25 years, the UN Trust Fund supported over 600 projects implemented by civil society and women’s rights organizations changing the lives of women and girls in every region, with innovative and demand-driven initiatives.

Ending violence against women and girls starts with every single one of us. You can make a stand in making a world free from violence a reality for women and girls. Today, start with donating USD25 to the UN Trust Fund.

With US$25, a girl in Ethiopia can stay in school for one whole year without period stigma;

With US$25, women survivors of violence in Albania can have food for a week;

With US$25, three women and girl survivors of violence with disabilities can have their tests and treatment covered during COVID-19 in Uganda.

Take action, lead the change to make a difference for women and girls around the world.

An infographic to explain the steps involved in the hashtag Give 25 for UNTF 25 Challenge, in which step 1 is to choose a habit to change such as bringing your own lunch instead of eating out; step 2 is to take a photo of you with that habit changed, for example with your own lunch and tag UN Trust Fund EVAW on Instagram and use the hashtag Give 25 for UNTF 25; step 3 is to challenge 3 friends to do the same; step 4 is to get featured on UN Trust Fund's social media channels.

As the only global grant-giving funding mechanism exclusively dedicated to ending all forms of violence against women and girls, the UN Trust Fund has been ensuring civil society and women’s rights organizations are properly resourced. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many UN Trust Fund grantees are first responders to the urgent needs of women and girl survivors and those at risk of the rising violence in all its forms.

The advocacy for their visibility, recognition and support is more important than ever. Join us today.
