Thank you for supporting our event! The money raised will go to further develop ACWW’s aims of raising the standard of living for rural women and their families by amplifying their voices, challenging the inequalities they face, and supporting educational opportunities for women and girls to help eliminate discrimination.

Those joining us will be accompanied by the 4 beneficiaries of the WThM scholarships as well as by other friends and supporters. We will do our best to ensure that social distancing guidelines are observed
This year, ACWW and it's members have been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Because member societies are rightly following WHO and government guidelines and not having meetings, we have seen a decrease in donations to the enabling fund of ACWW: Pennies for Friendship.
You will know that our projects donations (The Women Empowered Fund) are restricted to only funding projects and their direct associated costs, so all the other work of ACWW is reliant on Pennies for Friendship. This includes UN representation and participation, promotional and educational materials like the magazine and leaflets, research, Board members' outreach, board and committee meetings, and staffing.
While ACWW has financial security because of our reserves, we need our members to help ensure that ACWW is able to continue all of it's vital work, this year and beyond. So, as you plan your event, we will provide you with resources that explain how ACWW uses your donations to help rural women around the world.
