In its 2017 annual report, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women highlights the life-changing results grantees working to prevent and end violence against women and girls around the world. It also aims to show the UN Trust Fund’s increased investment and efforts in building capacity and ensuring the sustainability of grantees.
In the foreward to the annual report, Aldijana Sisic, Chief of the UN Trust Fund wrote: "Activists in movements around the world, like our grantees presented in this report, are engaged in their own national conversations and they know how to respond. They know very well that to end violence against women we must go further than the conviction of an individual perpetrator. As an immediate first response, we must provide multisectoral support to all survivors and, in the longer term, we must address the roots of violence against women and girls. We must change structures and systems of inequality and inequity that allow men around the world to undermine, harass, abuse and violate women and their rights."
