ACWW Women Walk the World
WOMEN WALK THE WORLD FOR ACWW
The time is drawing near for ACWW’s Day, as the 29th April 2012 will soon be upon us.
Members throughout the world are being asked to join in ‘Women Walk the World for ACWW’. The aim will be to raise ACWW’s profile and to raise funds.
Everyone will start their walk at the same time in different time zones. This will result in members walking at all times during a 24 hour period. Where possible, members should seek local sponsorship.
This is a very important day, so please take part - for your own health & for the health of ACWW.
Start preparing now!

ACWW Pen Friend
One of the fundamental aims of ACWW, besides working to empower women worldwide; is to encourage international friendships. The Pen Friend, Correspondence Link Scheme, has become a popular way to do this. By bringing women everywhere closer together; this enables them to communicate with each other more easily.
