UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking: 20 new NGO projects selected for emergency grants under the sixth grant cycle

 

Vienna (Austria), 8 June 2022 - 20 projects proposed by specialized civil society organizations (CSO) from 17 countries have been selected under the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking (UNVTF)’s sixth Call for Proposals (sub-grant programme one (SGP 1) dedicated for emergency aid grants). SGP 1 was introduced in 2019 to provide agile responses to victims of human trafficking in or fleeing from humanitarian and natural crises.

The selected projects represent a fair geographical distribution with enhanced visibility on Central Asia, as well as Latin American and Caribbean, which are the priority regions of SGP 1. A record number of applications were received as a result of collective outreach efforts of the Trust Fund, with colleagues disseminating the Call for Proposals in Spanish, Russian, English and French.  

The UNVTF was established by the UN General Assembly within the UN Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons in 2010. It is managed by UNODC and advised by a Board of Experts appointed by the Secretary-General. The UNVTF awards multi-year grants of up to USD 60,000 to global CSOs that provide victim-centred comprehensive support and humanitarian aid to survivors of human trafficking in desperate need of help. With the latest 20 selected proposals, the Trust Fund has awarded over 6 million USD to more than 140 projects implemented by civil society partners, thereby directly supporting over 5,000 victims a year, most of which are women and girls.

Details of the newly selected projects, which provide shelter, medical and material support, repatriation service, and other emergency aid, are as follows:
