    "Promoting Well-Being and Healthy Lives for Women and Girls" was announced as the theme for the 2019-2022 FAWCO Target Program Health at the Biennial Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, on March 24, 2019.



    Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.

    A final wrap up on Target Program Health (TP4)  

    A few final words from Tharien van Eck, Target Chair TP4

    I recently read the following quote in Jane Goodall’s book, The Book of Hope, which is a wonderful and very appropriate summary of TP4. The quote reads: 

    "We need to have realistic goals to pursue, as well as realistic pathways to achieve them. In addition, we need the confidence that we can achieve these goals, and the support to help us overcome adversity." 

    We had goals, namely to create awareness and educate FAWCO members on various health-related topics and to raise funds for the Target Project, and we knew the pathways to help us in succeeding to do so. Then COVID-19 came along, and we had to navigate through an unknown scenario; the known pathways had to be thrown out of the window, and we had to find new solutions. With our confidence intact that we could make this work and the support of you, the FAWCO community, we overcame adversity and we grew stronger, united in the goal to support the TP4 Target Project, Safe Alternatives for FGM Elimination!    

    With your support, $177,413.25 was raised!  Thank you very much!
