Vanuatu Women’s Centre is supported by UN Women with funding from the Pacific Partnership to End Violence Against Women and Girls (Pacific Partnership) programme, funded primarily by the European Union with targeted support from the governments of Australia and New Zealand and cost sharing with UN Women.

The Vanuatu Women’s Centre’s (VWC) core national program has been funded by the Australian Aid program since 1994. The New Zealand Government funded VWC’s branch in Sanma from its establishment in 1995 through to 2012, and funded VWC’s safehouse services for many years. UN Women funded VWC’s Penama branch since its establishment in January 2017. Several other donors have funded specific trainings or small projects including the British High Commission, the Austrian Government, the World Bank, UN Women, and Child Fund Australia. Support has also been received from time to time by several local organisations in Vanuatu.
