Offer: The United Nations Trust Fund Call for Proposals

I was pleased to see on the Peace and Collaborative Development Network the first announcement of the annual competition for programs that ' country-level efforts to end violence against women and girls. The criteria, eligibility requirements and application guidelines are available at The deadline for application is 20 January 2011.'

It would be great to see a winner from members of the World Pulse community as I have certainly seen great examples from participants on this platform.

The grants which run from $100,000 to $1,000,000 USD over 2 to 3 year periods would certainly help organizations bring violence against girls and women to the top of country agendas which is where it belongs.

The guidelines are found at
AND in several languages which is really helpful.

For those of you who haven't yet gone directly to the UN website - 'The UN Trust Fund aims to expand the global knowledge base on effective approaches to implement national and local laws, policies, programmes and action plans by supporting the piloting, testing, up-scaling, evaluation, documentation and dissemination of catalytic, innovative and promising approaches on ending violence against women and girls. The ideal proposal will ensure rigorous documentation of findings and evaluation with a view to sharing lessons learned and to providing practical guidance for other programmers.
Through its focus on national implementation of existing commitments, the UN Trust Fund also aims to contribute to the Secretary General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women Campaign 2008-2015─specifically by supporting the five key outcomes as regards to the enforcement of national laws, the implementation of multi-sectoral action plans, support to data collection systems, social mobilization and prevention strategies and addressing sexual violence in conflict situations'.

I would like to offer my assistance to any group needing help putting together a proposal who is in need of guidance that a retired former UN staff member can provide.
