*UN TRUST FUND TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN MARKS 25th **ANNIVERSARY - 
NEW CALL FOR FUNDING PROPOSALS ANNOUNCED*
*APPLICATION GUIDELINES*
http://www.unwomen.org/how-we-work/un-trust-fund/application-guidelines/

United Nations, New York, 23 November 2011 ? To mark the International 
Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, and in 
tribute to grassroots activists around the world who are at the 
forefront of the efforts to end the pandemic of violence, the United 
Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) today 
announced its new global Call for Proposals to support country-level 
programmes to end violence against women and girls.

This year?s Call for Proposals marks the UN Trust Fund?s 15th 
anniversary. ?The fifteen years of the UN Trust Fund have shown us what 
works to end violence against women,? said Michelle Bachelet, UN 
Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women. ?Change is 
possible, and the strategies and innovations that have developed with 
support from the UN Trust Fund are a strong testament to the fact that 
we are at a unique moment in history to put an end to violence against 
women. It is time to translate this momentum into reality for women and 
girls, and their communities and nations.?

The UN Trust Fund?s partners work to prevent violence and to ensure 
critical services ? including legal aid, health care, shelter, and 
psychosocial support ? to women and girl survivors of violence. Using 
multiple strategies, UN Trust Fund partners are working with youth, 
engaging men and boys, combining media with education, and developing 
the capacity of first responders. Showcasing the impressive results 
achieved through the projects, the UN Trust Fund recently published a 
new report, ?UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women ? Mapping of 
the Grantees? Outcomes (2006 to mid-2011).?

The report?s findings highlight that the UN Trust Fund has supported 
innovative, effective initiatives that have transformed the ways in 
which people and institutions think and act. The Trust Fund has invested 
in comprehensive approaches that range from prevention to the provision 
of services and efforts to bring legislative reform for women impacted 
by violence against women. It has provided seed funding for approaches 
that are recognized among the world?s leading practices, such as the 
Safe Cities initiative that began in Latin America and is now ?going 
global? with support from the United Nations and various government and 
civil society partners.

In her message for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence 
against Women, Ms. Bachelet said, ?The United Nations Trust Fund to End 
Violence against Women is supporting local groups and innovative 
strategies, saving lives and helping to end the indifference, inequality 
and impunity that allow such violence to continue.?

As of November 2011, the UN Trust Fund?s grant portfolio comprised 96 
projects in 86 countries for a total value of more than USD 61 million. 
More than 77 percent of these grants, amounting to more than USD 44 
million, support civil society organizations. Grants awarded to 
governments and UN county teams amount to USD 5.9 million and USD 10.8 
million, respectively. However, funding gaps continue to persist: the UN 
Trust Fund was able to meet only 5 percent of the demand for funding in 
2011. ?To mark this year?s 15th anniversary, I invite partners to 
contribute to the Trust Fund to meet the high unmet needs for 
programming around the globe,? said Ms. Bachelet.

Established in 1996 by a General Assembly Resolution, the UN Trust Fund 
is the only multilateral grant-making mechanism exclusively devoted to 
supporting local and national efforts to end violence against women and 
girls. It is managed by UN Women on behalf of the UN system.

The Call for Proposals is open until 19 January 2012, 23:59 EST (New 
York time), and it can be accessed at
