Dear Fellow Member Societies
Greetings and Wishes..!
It is my privilege and honour to report the strategies employed for the empowerment of women worldwide.
I would like to start by thanking the member societies who have been collaborating with me for the past few months. I would also like to congratulate the member societies working for the development of the people, with special focus on women empowerment programs.
Our strength is being united for the cause. Various developmental steps are being taken to improve the interpersonal relationship of the member societies like, visiting member societies and witnessing their developmental works, as well as networking with one another to build contact with one another.

ACWW Area Conference is scheduled to be held from 16th – 18th November 2011 in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. The venue will be Pillar Hall, Nagamalai Puthukottai and Madurai.
Workshop for member Societies:
A Workshop is being arranged on 14th and 15th November. The topic of the workshop will be ‘Result based management with women Empowerment as a Perspective’. ASK- New Delhi will facilitate the workshop.
To enhance the value of inter-societies collaboration, the members are being encouraged to visit or share their resource towards the common goal, ‘Empowerment of Women’.
Pache Trust who work with HIV/AIDS victims in Madurai district, have visited Sri Lanka Mahila Samithi who works for the same cause in Sri Lanka.
Penny for the Friendship - every penny can build life
Every member society is called to participate beyond monetary deal, to have concern by way of their responsibility to the society in a small way possible. Each penny can enlighten life and abundance, each society as a member can contribute by thoughts, words and deeds and even with a penny that can bring holistic change in the world where we work.
WOMEN WALK THE WORLD
All the members are requested to participate in this special program.
Why is walking the concept? In a simple way to help women whose routine is to fetch water, cook, wash clothes etc.
Aims: Promote the idea of ACWW and allow women to grow socially and economically.
Walking is quite easy and inexpensive for all, so please plan and promote this Idea in your areas
Walking thoughts: When our entire members walk on the same day, the entire 24 hours will have our members walking for the entire day around the world.
It is while walking we meet all our kin, friends, and well wishers ….walk and walk …meet and meet … friends and neighbors …making more pennies for our development dreams.
Any query please contacts us.
