We know that achieving gender equality will be hard work. But we know the results will be worth it.
When you empower women, whole communities benefit. When women have a say in issues that affect them, society changes for the better. When women are involved in national decision-making, they create more peaceful societies.
At UN Women NC UK, we support two major funds which campaign for change through innovative, high impact programmes.
The Fund for Gender Equality
The fund for gender equality aims to empower women worldwide. In 2015, the fund awarded
$7.3 million to 24 global programmes.
The UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women
The UN trust fund to end violence against women aims to systematically reduce and eliminate violence against women and girls. It has supported services with grants of over $116 million since its creation in 1996.
