FAWCO TARGET PROGRAM: 2016-2019
EMPOWERING WOMEN AND GIRLS THROUGH KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS
The FAWCO Target Project is a sustainable investment by our FAWCO members to empower women and girls. Over the next two years (2017-2019), the FAWCO Foundation will employ the energy and generosity of our members through the Backing Women Fundraising Campaign to support women's and girls' education. Proceeds generated through these efforts will support the current FAWCO Target project:
