The Women Empowered Fund

ACWW’s projects are grassroots initiatives, focused on empowering women to make positive, sustainable change and progress in their lives and communities. We fund projects which fall within criteria set by our policy and constitution, summarised in 6 priority focus areas. When you donate to one of these focus areas, your donation will be earmarked for that specific focus area, and only used to fund projects and their associated costs.

ACWW Projects are making a difference in the lives of women around the world. We are dedicated to the empowerment of rural women based on the needs they see in their communities. We believe that empowering women is the key to sustainable change, and that empowered women have a responsibility to support their sisters. After all, this is the foundation of ACWW – connecting and supporting women through collaboration, education, and opportunity. Woman to woman. Community to Community. Together, we are empowered.
