10 Years of the UN Trust Fund to End VAW
The year 2007 marks the 10th anniversary of the United Nations Trust Fund in Support of Actions to Eliminate Violence against Women, which is managed by UNIFEM.
The Trust Fund is the only multilateral grant-making mechanism that supports local, national and regional efforts to combat gender-based violence. These UN-supported efforts have:
- linked activists and advocates from all parts of the world;
- shown how small, innovative projects impact laws, policies and attitudes; and
- helped break the wall of silence, moving the issue onto public agendas everywhere.
