Make a Donation

We welcome all donations in support of the work we are doing in the Pacific and for that which UNW New York does for women around the world.

What happens to donations?

  • You can specify that you would like it to go towards the establishment of a new project in the Solomon Islands. This is looking at empowering women market vendors at the Honiara market to become organised in order to have a voice in the management of the market. Many are rural women who need to sleep overnight at the market under appalling conditions. International Women’s Day profits go towards this project.
  • You can specify that it should go towards the UNW Pacific Trust Fund for ending violence against women. Our contributions to this fund are specifically for the Solomon Islands. Walk for Women supports this fund.
  • You can contribute towards the organisation of UNW in New Zealand. Currently we are all volunteers, apart from 3 hours per week of administrative assistance. We would like to increase those paid hours in order to enhance our outreach and local focus. Note that a small proportion of money from fundraising goes towards administrative costs.

You can donate the amount of your choosing by secure PayPal payment below.

Violence Against Women | UN Women New Zealand

It has many manifestations — from the most universally prevalent forms of domestic and sexual violence, to harmful practices, abuse during pregnancy, so-called honour killings and other types of femicide. In 1994, a World Bank study on ten selected risk factors facing girls and women in this age group, found rape and domestic violence more dangerous than cancer, motor vehicle accidents, war and malaria.

Millennium Development Goals | UN Women New Zealand

Gender equality is the third goal, but it is also integral to achieving all eight MDGs, from preventing the spread of HIV to sustaining the environment in the face of climate change. Gender equality is a key concern and we ensure that we contribute to sections of the CEDAW alternate report that is coordinated through the National Council of Women. Monitoring CEDAW compliance is an important way to check on progress with the MDGs.
