FAWCO TARGET PROJECT
Help FAWCO Help Others.
The FAWCO Target project, initiated in 2009, helps bring together women from clubs located all over the world to join together and support a common cause, with the goal of improving the lives of women and children.
Every three years, FAWCO selects and supports a “Target Project” with the overarching goal of improving the lives of women and girls. The project is chosen on a revolving basis through four areas of interest: Education, Environment, Health and Human Rights. At the annual convention a theme is announced and several different supporting projects are nominated by member clubs. The final project is voted on by the clubs.
The AIWCD is a proud supporter of the FAWCO Target Project. Each year, we hold several events to raise money for these projects, including our annual Casino Night event. Our efforts have enabled us to donate in support of FAWCO's mission.

Free The Girls provides economic empowerment through sustainable employment opportunities for women and girls rescued from sex trafficking in developing countries. They do this by helping trafficking survivors set up micro-enterprises in the second-hand clothing markets prevalent in developing countries, wherein the women sell bras donated by women and industry partners in North America and Europe.

Funds Raised by FAWCO Clubs: $165,000+
The Tabitha WATER program enables families to have access to clean, potable water and to raise a family’s income significantly. Without a sustainable source of clean water near their homes, families are restricted in their ability to increase their incomes. Animal husbandry or growing crops is impossible without an ongoing source of water available.
FAWCO Target Programs have the overarching goal of improving the lives of women and girls. They also offer opportunities for local FAWCO Clubs to come together and make a global difference.
