About the Directory
The NO MORE Global Directory is a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive international directory of domestic violence and sexual assault resources in every UN-recognized country and territory in the world. The site was created by the NO MORE Foundation in partnership with the United Nations and the World Bank, and it is intended to serve as a global hub of information and resources for victims and their loved ones. This directory is the latest step in our efforts to create a world with NO MORE domestic and sexual violence.
