The global impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic has been stark and distressing. All over the world, our members have been affected, and their lives changed. ACWW has done its best to maintain the network of membership for future generations, and keep our members working together for a better future. As many members have stopped having their local meetings, donations to ACWW have dropped drastically. We need your help to keep ACWW going, and secure this network of international friendship, sisterhood, learning, and advocacy for the future. Please pledge to donate an amount to support Pennies for Friendship today. We are asking Members and Member Societies to commit to raising a minimum of £50 each by 29 April 2021 – with a global target of £100,000 to be achieved by that date, ACWW Day.
Pennies for Friendship is the ‘enabling fund' of ACWW. It enables the Board and to meet collectively and engage with members in their Area; it maintains the central office, which is the hub of ACWW’s work, giving a place to carry out the day-to-day activities, host Board and Committee Meetings, and keep the extensive archive. PFF maintains the staff, who support all ACWW activities globally with resources, research, advocacy, and legal compliance. Pennies for Friendship also allows us to facilitate the network that connects women across the globe. We produce awareness raising material, educational resources, and advocate for rural women at the United Nations.
