UN.GIFT Call For Proposal from Civil Society

The United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT) was conceived to promote the global fight on human trafficking, on the basis of international agreements reached at the UN. To date, over 117 countries have signed the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons especially Women and Children, which supplements the Palermo Convention against trans-national organized crime.

Objectives:
  1. To foster awareness, global commitment and action to counter human trafficking in partnership with different stakeholders including governments, the international community, non-governmental organizations and other elements of civil society and media
  2. To create and strengthen support structures for victims of trafficking


UN.GIFT has established a Small Grants Facility with the overall objective to increase and improve support structures for victims of human trafficking around the world. Through a Call for Proposals, relevant organizations will be identified and the most promising projects will be selected. Civil society organizations will receive grants either to sustain existing anti-human trafficking initiatives or to engage in additional counter-trafficking activities. In additions, the UN.GIFT website will provide a virtual forum for CSOs to promote their projects, to network with other stakeholders and to showcase their activities to the international community.
