The Heidelberg IWC is a proud Member Club of FAWCO. Founded in 1931, FAWCO is an international network of independent volunteer clubs and associations comprising 65 member clubs in 34 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.
As a Member Club, our members can attend yearly conferences and regional meetings, have access to online resources and training, fundraise on a global scale for causes that we care about, apply for education awards and development grants, and much more. We are thrilled to be a part of this dynamic organization.
