Act Now: Support the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women

Since 1996, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women has supported programmes and services worldwide that benefit women and girls. However, the demand for such resources far outstrips the supply. In 2009 alone, the Fund—which relies exclusively on voluntary contributions—received more than 1,600 proposals requesting total of $860 million. It could meet less than 3 percent of the demand. Act now to support the Fund.
