Hi dearest readers ;)


Today is Orange Day.

Take action to Orange your day on Friday, August 25th 2017 !!!

This Orange Day, 25 Augusr 2017, the UNiTE Campaign focuses on  Violence against women in humanitarian crises.


With continued population growth, urbanization, stretched natural resources, protracted conflict, and the impact of climate change becoming more apparent, the number of humanitarian crises continues to grow, as does the number of communities requiring humanitarian assistance. 1


For instance, through changing temperatures, precipitation and sea level rises, among other factors, global climate change is already modifying hazard levels and exacerbating disaster risks. The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) assessed that from 2005 to 2015, 87 per cent of disasters have been climate related. 2


Within crises affected communities, women and girls are often disproportionately at risk to the effects of these crises. They are more likely to lose their means of livelihood and face heightened risks of gender-based violence, such as sexual violence, including rape, as well as early marriage and human trafficking due to displacement and the breakdown of the normal structures of protection and support. 3


Further, in the aftermath of disasters, their specific humanitarian needs are often neither adequately identified nor addressed in the ensuing response by governments and humanitarian agencies alike. 4


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development clearly posits that all women and girls, regardless of their location, situation, and circumstances or migratory status, should be entitled to a life free from violence and its consequences. Any measure taken to achieve Goal 5 and eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls must include those affected by crisis and conflict.

What is Orange Day ?

The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign, managed by UN Women, has proclaimed every 25th of the month as “Orange Day” – a day to take action to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls.

Initiated and led by the UNiTE campaign Global Youth Network, Orange Day calls upon activists, governments and UN partners to mobilize people and highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year, on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women), but every month.


Take action to this Orange Day

*   Organize an Orange Charity 5K Run, a Zumba-thon or a charity soccer game. Partner with your local sports club and request pledges based on distance and time!

*   Volunteer your skills! Reach out to a local organization in your community that addresses the issue of violence against women and girls affected by crisis, or check out online opportunities offered by many organizations, such as the International Red Cross or, to support their work in the field.
