Commitment to Action

UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women

Commitment by

United Nations Development Fund For Women

In 2008, UN Women (formerly UNIFEM) committed to launch a global fundraising drive to raise $100 million annually by 2015 for the UN Trust Fund's grant-making. This target was officially adopted in the Secretary-General's campaign 'UNiTE to End Violence against Women,' which represents a call to action for governments, the private sector, the media and the public at large. The campaign and its $100 million benchmark for the UN Trust Fund coincide with the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals in order to recognize how violence thwarts women's rights, including access to education, health, justice, employment, property, political participation, and representation
