ending violence against women and girls

The pandemic and its shadow: lessons in standing with women’s rights organisations

As the world grapples with the Covid-19 pandemic, a shadow pandemic of violence against women and girls is emerging around the world. Like many organisations, the Sigrid Rausing Trust’s grantees are sounding the alarm about the rapid and widespread increase in abuse, and telling us how funders can stand with them to respond.


“We have to be solidary, women understand each other best”

In project “Local support to the most vulnerable from the refugee population” that has been implemented with the support of United Nations Population Fund, mutual support and understanding of women are the framework of the activities carried out. 

“It is essential that we talk about this, it is important that we, women from other countries are familiar with our rights here, so that we can fight jointly and make space for ourselves”.


Together to End Violence against Women and Girls

In 2018 NGO Atina has gained a new and important ally in its combat against violence against women – UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UNTF). Today, we had a great pleasure and honor to host representatives of UNTF, to present our experience in providing direct assistance to women and girls, survivors of human trafficking and violence against women. We have also presented the work of our Reintegration Center and social enterprise Bagel Bejgl.
