The UN Trust Fund supports results-based projects focused on finding solutions and contributing to the overall understanding of effective strategies to counter all forms of violence against women and girls in the most cost-effective way. Across the UN Trust Fund’s active portfolio the average cost to reach one person in 2017 was $2.70, illustrating the great impact of even small investments.
As the only global, multilateral, grant-making mechanism that is dedicated exclusively to addressing all forms of violence against women and girls, the UN Trust Fund aims to create sustainable change at the local and national level. It does so through its three strategic directions: catalyzing learning from global evidence collected from its grantees; leveraging its unique mandate and convening power to advocate for and foster sustainable financing; and supporting results-oriented approaches to prevent and end violence against women and girls.
The UN Trust Fund supports grantee organizations to achieve, replicate and scale up results on ending violence against women and girls through the UN Trust Fund’s effective management of grants. This includes building the capacity of grantee organizations to achieve results and sustain impact after the UN Trust Fund grant has ended.
In addition to its reporting processes, the UN Trust Fund publishes case studies that illustrate the ongoing success of projects through the life cycle of the grant.
