UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women is accepting applications for its grant cycle

Although I visit UN website frequently, I first read in the Peace and Collaborative Development Network (PCDN) that

"The UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women is accepting applications for its 17th grant cycle (2012) from government authorities at the national and local levels, civil society organizations and networks — including non-governmental, women’s and community-based organizations and coalitions and operational research institutions — and UN Country Teams in partnership with governments and civil society organizations. The deadline for submission of applications is 21 January 2013, 11:59 EST"

Details can be found by visiting < http://www.unwomen.org/how-we-work/un-trust-fund/application-guidel...>. The online application will be available from 21 November 2012 until 21 January 2013 at: < http://grants.unwomen.org >

The 2012 UN Trust Fund Call invites proposals in the following areas of action:
i. Closing the Gap on the Implementation of National and Local Laws, Policies and Action Plans that Address Violence against Women
ii. Addressing Violence against Adolescent and Young Girls


It is really important to get to work on preparations as quickly as possible because it takes time to prepare a submission that passes initial reviews.
