In 2009, FAWCO and The FAWCO Foundation announced a four year program to bring a critical global issue to the attention of FAWCO Clubs, their members and to the world. The FAWCO Target Program is a unique opportunity for FAWCO member clubs and FAUSA members to work together towards the goal of clean water worldwide.
FAWCO's Target Water Program, which ended in February 2013, was a tremendous success with participation from 78% of member clubs and nearly $165,000 raised ($162,590 to be exact with one more club doing a fundraiser in April). About $135,000 went to Tabitha Cambodia Wells for Clean Water while the remainder went to other Water projects.
At the 41st Biennial conference in Bern, Target Program Chair Anne van Oorschot (AWC The Hague) received a Caroline Curtis Brown Spirit Award for her tireless work in the last two years. She gave an excellent final report and included a thank-you video from Tabitha's founder Janne Ritskes.
Thanks to the generosity of our clubs and members, FAWCO has changed the flow for 1541 families in Cambodia.
In September 2012, the FAWCO Board appointed the Target Evaluation Task Force to review this program and make recommendations for improvements. Thanks to Monica Jubayli, Anne van Oorschot, Elsie Bose, Sara von Moos, Karen Lewis, Pam Perraud, and Tricia Saur for their thorough and thoughtful recommendations, which have been adopted by both Boards - FAWCO and The FAWCO Foundation.
