    Education - Empowering Women and Girls through Knowledge and Skills, was announced as the overarching theme for the 2016-2019 FAWCO Target Program, at the Interim Meeting in Frankfurt, Germany (March 11-13, 2016).


    Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women. When girls are educated, they lead healthier and more productive lives. They gain the skills, knowledge and self-confidence to escape the cycle of poverty. They become better citizens, parents and breadwinners. An educated girl has a positive ripple effect on her health, family, community and society as a whole.  - USAID

    In our monthly Target Bulletin and Blog: Let's Get Schooled, we learned what matters in girls’ education:

    • The issues which prevent millions of women and girls from receiving quality education around the globe.
    • The goals established by world leaders in education to remedy this injustice.
    • The impact education has on the lives of women and girls, their families, their communities and society.

    The FAWCO Target Project is a sustainable investment by our Member Clubs to empower women and girls. For a two year period (2017-2019), The FAWCO Foundation employed the energy and generosity of our members through the Backing Women Fundraising Campaign to support women's and girls’ education. Over $190,000 was raised for the FAWCO Target Project:
