UN WOMEN UK

Our global
Trust Funds 

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. When you donate to our work to end violence or to enable more women to have the vote for example, the work is administered through one of these global Trust Funds.
