What is the New Life Fund?

The aim of the New Life Fund is to help victims of honour-related violence, forced marriages and female genital mutilation/cutting, but also to prevent and combat this violence.

Honour-related violence includes all forms of physical, psychological and sexual violence suffered by young girls or women and their children because of harmful and sometimes criminal traditions.

The Fund’s main aim is to support initiatives that provide victims with concrete and direct help. In so doing, it aims to help turn a harsh reality into a hopeful future.

Both projects in Belgium and abroad are eligible for support from the Fund.

The New Life Fund was created under the auspices of the King Baudouin Foundation
