Topic: FAWCO with introductions and information by HIWC President Christine Funke and FAWCO Rep Ulrike Näumann
Founded in 1931, FAWCO is an international network of independent volunteer clubs and associations comprising 62 member clubs in 31 countries worldwide, with a total membership of around 10,000. FAWCO serves as a resource and a voice for its members; seeks to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of human rights, health, education and the environment; advocates for the rights of U.S. citizens overseas; contributes to the global community through its Teams and The FAWCO Foundation, which provides development grants and education awards. The organization is a global women’s NGO (non-governmental organization), and since 1997, FAWCO has held special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council.
During this meeting you'll learn more about:
- the Heidelberg IWC's status as a FAWCO Member Club and what that means for HIWC Members
- the highlights of the Biennial Conference in Edinburgh that took place in March 2019
- the Target Program, a FAWCO-wide initiative to bring awareness to an issue concerning women and girls and then collectively fundraise for one project to make an impact in our world.
