New Delhi: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced a $250,000 grant for the “Delhi Safe City – Free of Violence against Women and Girls”, to be implemented in partnership with Indian civil society organizations.

The grant will be channeled through to UN Women as part of the Global Safe Cities Initiative, a statement said.

The U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy J. Powell said, “The United States recognise’s gender-based violence as a debilitating factor impeding a woman’s active participation in any economy in the world and her ability to access resources and services.

“We are pleased to partner with UN Women to help promote safe cities and reduce gender-based violence, which plagues every country in the world,” she added.
