UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women 2022 Call for Proposals

About

The UN Trust Fund is seeking proposals for civil society-led, demand-driven initiatives to end violence against women and girls for three-year grants for up to USD1 million.

The aim of the UN Trust Fund is to “ensure that more women and girls, especially the most marginalized and those experiencing intersecting forms of discrimination, can exercise their human right to live a life free of all forms of violence” through initiatives that:

  • Improve access for women and girls to essential, specialist, safe and adequate multisectoral services

  • Improve prevention of VAW/G through changes in behaviours, practices and attitudes

  • Increase effectiveness of legislation, policies, national action plans and accountability systems to prevent and end VAW/G.

Priorities
  • For this Call, they will prioritize applications from the following types of organizations:

    • Women’s rights organizations (WROs), in full recognition of their being the driving force of the ending violence against women agenda and feminist movements, as well as being at the forefront of EVAW/G work, directly reaching women and girls survivors and those at highest risk of exclusion and marginalization.

    • CSOs/WROs led by and for marginalized women and girls (e.g., constituent-led), that have specialized knowledge, expertise and a proven track record of working with women and girls facing or at risk of violence, especially survivors-led organizations. Girl-led and girl-centered organizations are also particularly encouraged to apply.

    • CSOs/WROs with local or community-level reach that are best-placed to meet the needs of women and girls in their contexts, including through collaboration and equitable partnerships. Applications from organizations that are not local (but meet other criteria) are still welcome if the proposal includes an equitable partnership with local women’s rights organizations or constituent-led groups for greater impact or community reach. The proposal must demonstrate how the partnership will ensure an equitable power balance that empowers community/locally based groups and CSOs/WROs.

Funding Information
  • All civil society organizations can apply for a grant amount between US $150,001 and US $1,000,000.

Outcomes
  • Under this broad framework, the UN Trust Fund welcomes proposals for initiatives that contribute to one or more of its three strategic outcome areas:

    • Improved access for women and girls to essential, specialist, safe and adequate multisectoral services

    • Improved prevention of VAW/G through changes in behaviours, practices and attitudes

    • Increased effectiveness of legislation, policies, national action plans and accountability systems to prevent and end VAW/G.

Ineligible
  • The following are NOT eligible to apply for a grant:

    • Organizations proposing interventions in a country not listed in the OECD DAC list of ODA recipients

    • Organizations whose work and mission/vision statement do not focus on nor explicitly mention gender equality and the elimination of violence against women and/or girls

    • Organizations that do not have a legal status (and are not operating) in the country or territory of implementation, and neither do any of its co-implementing partners

    • Government agencies or institutions
