Partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Violence against women and girls is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic, or geographic boundaries and can affect anyone, regardless of their status in society. Fashion has a universal appeal and can be a powerful tool to address and create awareness and empower communities to challenge norms and beliefs that perpetuate violence against women and girls. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Amilani Perera, embarked on a partnership in 2020 to address the issue of violence through the fashion and the apparel industry. Women engage in the apparel industry in all aspects, from designing, producing, modelling and beyond, and we must ensure these women are treated equally in their chosen field of employment Through the partnership with UNFPA, Amilani Perera will engage survivors of violence in product development, while conducting mentoring programmes to enhance their fashion and design skills.
