Financing the End of Gender-Based Violence: Lessons from YWCA Canada’s Ness Fund

🌍 YWCA Canada will host a parallel event at the NGO CSW Forum 🌍

In 2022, YWCA Canada and Member Associations launched the National Emergency Survivor Support (NESS) Fund. This initiative provides women, gender diverse people, and their families with financial support to leave unsafe homes or emergency shelters/precarious housing situations and begin their healing journeys. Related to this year’s UN CSW theme,” Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective” YWCA Canada will host a conversation between Aline Nizigama (CEO | YWCA Canada), Jenny Cloutier (Project Manager | YWCA Canada), Sydney Piggott (Senior Social Impact Manager | Shopify), and Victoria Kahla (Programme Manager for RiseUp! in Asia-Pacific Regions | World YWCA) to learn more about YWCA Canada’s NESS Fund.

Be a part of this conversation and join us for a meaningful discussion on how we can support survivors of GBV! 🙌
