UN Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture – Online application system

On-line application System (GMS)

The Secretariat of the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture launched in 2008 an on-line system to allow organizations to submit applications for funding and reports on the use of grants in a more user-friendly and paper-less fashion.

The on-line system is regularly updated in order to respond to the needs of grantees.

For instruction on how to submit an application through GMS, please refer to: User's Manual for report (PDF) E | F | S
