The following is an excerpt from an article posted in Episcopal News Service in November 2018: Episcopal Relief & Development and the Episcopal Church of Liberia Receive Three-Year Grant from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women
In a November 15, 2018 article, Islamic Relief USA was acknowledged as a contributing partner along with the UN Trust Fund to end Violence against Women in Liberia. IRUSA entered the partnership as a pilot program and it is now being replicated through a three year $670,00 grant. The program will be concentrating on helping to promote the rights and safety of women and children so that communities can grow and thrive.
“Episcopal Relief & Development and the humanitarian arm of the Episcopal Church of Liberia (ECL-RD) were awarded a second $670,000 three-year grant from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) to expand a gender-based violence prevention and response project in Liberia.
Working with local Anglican and ecumenical partners, Episcopal Relief & Development is focused on creating long-term solutions in three key priorities: Women, Children, and Climate. The organization’s work with women concentrates on helping to promote the rights and safety of women and children so that communities can grow and thrive. In Liberia, a partnership with the Church of Liberia, Scaling Up Faith Leaders Engagement to Prevent and Respond to Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG), works to reduce intimate partner violence and increases access to services for women in rural settings. The program builds on the success of an earlier pilot program that was supported by the UN Trust Fund and Islamic Relief USA, among other funders. ”
