General Charities Fund


Beginning in July 2013, the AIWCC aligned its charity efforts with the FAWCO Target Program.


The Target Program draws upon FAWCO's first Resolution: 'To improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of human rights, health, education and environment.' All Target Projects will focus on women and girls and will address one of the four issues (human rights, health, education and environment) on a rotating basis. The FAWCO Target Program runs on a three year cycle (1 year for project selection and two years for fundraising).


As announced at the March 2013 FAWCO Conference in Bern, the current Target Issue is Human Rights for Women. The AIWCC will focus all charitable effort on this issue for the next three years, working to raise awareness and fundraise for both local charities and the winning Target Project (to be announced in March 2014).


The Charities Committee organizes a variety of charitable events throughout the year in order to raise money for our General Charities Fund. The below list outlines organizations supported through our fund in 2010 to 2013.
