Grantee Partners

The Fund’s approach to the issue of gender-based violence is multi-pronged, supporting three key approaches as part of our anti-violence and safety strategy:


Address the root causes of gender-based violence at the individual, community, and systemic level.


Support efforts and movements that intervene in the cycle of violence.


Create spaces for long-term individual and community healing to shift the narrative from victim to survivor.
