Rethink Ireland Launch “Freedom From Fear” Fund with Proclamation To End Violence Against Women In Ireland
The ‘Freedom From Fear’ Fund, which was launched today, has been created by Rethink Ireland in partnership with the National Women’s Council.
The Fund, which has an initial target of raising €100,000, is now open for donations.
The Fund aims to support education and prevention programmes working with girls and boys as well as supporting projects that address the structural causes and the risk and protective factors, associated with violence against women.
The Fund will also support projects working to achieve systemic culture change and innovative services to survivors of violence and their families.
Today, a Proclamation to end violence against women in Ireland was also launched, with a live printing of the document at the National Print Museum in Dublin.
The Proclamation is based on the UN and Council of Europe’s Conventions, signed by Ireland, which enshrine the rights of women to live with freedom from fear.
