Mumbai Murmurs – Follow up

Last month a FAWCO evening called “Mumbai Murmurs” was held where Jonelle, our FAWCO rep. informed about the Mumbai Conference. We saw a short film about the “Hope Beyond Displacement” movement that was announced as the 2017-2019 Target Project.

It is a Collateral Repair Project, located in Amman. The project is a grassroots effort to bring much needed assistance to refugee women and girls and other victims of war and conflict in Jordan, referred to as ‘collateral damage’.

This project will implement programs to help women and girls to learn, help rebuild the community with physiological needs, provide opportunities for women, some men and youth to take part in leadership activities, fostering social cohesion with the aim to provide a stable and safe environment for the refugees. The Target Project is fully described in the Target Program/Education page on the FAWCO website, http://www.fawco.org.

After the film a delicious Indian dinner was served by our President, Clarice. Besides donations from the participants there was also a raffle to boost the fundraising.  Many won the good prizes. There were two overseas guests from other AWC locations, Madrid and Beirut, who could tell us about their clubs.

Designing Women

Last, but not least, take a look at the new online FAWCO magazine, Designing Women, a Magazine Celebrating Lives Across the FAWCO World. The summer 2017 issue just came out and theme is “Designing Women”. It’s filled with profiles of FAWCO women all over the world whose work involves an element of design.

Designing Women wants to profile exceptional AWC women of every stripe. The themes of the Fall 2017 issue and the Winter 2017 issues are “Women in Education” and “Women in the Arts”. Do you know someone who should be profiled? Contact us with your suggestions!

Remember that you are already a member of FAWCO with your AWC membership, but you must formally register on www.fawco.org to access all areas of their site. Read the latest issue of Designing Women at: https://www.fawco.org/about/publications/inspiring-women
