Organizational Values and Principles:
Since 2002, the UN Women (formerly UNIFEM) Afghanistan Country Office (ACO) has been assisting the government of Afghanistan and its partners in the area of Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW). UN Women is further expanding its EVAW Program in view of building capacities and providing more coherent and specialized support in the work pertaining to EVAW carried out by both government and civil society organizations. In this regard, UN Women Afghanistan’s Elimination of Violence against Women Special Fund (EVAW SF) was established in 2007. The Fund addresses the inadequate mechanism to financially support and mobilize community-based and non-governmental organizations that are working on EVAW and expand EVAW initiatives throughout Afghanistan in a coordinated, strategic and sustainable manner. UN Women ACO aims to pass the Fund on to a national leadership within a set time frame. The work of the EVAW SF is inter-linked with all other EVAW initiatives of UN Women Afghanistan to ensure a coordinated and collaborative approach and their sustainability.
In supporting EVAW in Afghanistan, UN Women also recognizes the need to protect women human rights defenders engaged in promoting the full realization of gender equality commitments and women’s participation in political, peace and governance processes.  UN Women is in the process of establishing the Urgent Response Fund (URF) as a mechanism to address targeted violence against women’s rights defenders; to cultivate a safe environment for Afghan women to exercise their political rights of expression, representation, and peaceful assembly at the national and sub-national levels; and to provide rapid responses to ensure safety and security of those targeted by threats and violence. 
The UN Women Afghanistan Special Funds are a mechanism to strengthen resource efficiency and effectiveness by pooling resources and expertise via multiple stakeholders to provide effective response to address women’s rights priorities, build capacities and provide more coherent and specialized support to government, civil society organizations and individuals to work and deliver in close coordination and collaboration and to expand women’s rights initiatives throughout Afghanistan.
