This booklet outlines examples of promising approaches that Trust Fund grantees are using to eliminate the multiple forms of violence in women’s lives. In showcasing the work with diverse constituencies, including survivors of violence, men’s groups, school teachers and students, in the media and in various contexts, it seeks to show people everywhere how grantees have succeeded in breaking intergenerational cycles of violence, in empowering survivors to make changes in their own lives, and in transforming communities and institutions into advocates for change in the struggle to end violence against women. The following page presents a list of interlinked strategies and component activities needed to build a comprehensive programme, together with the number of grantees we have supported in each category.
