Each year on or around 29th April, women worldwide celebrate ACWW’s international network by joining together to Walk the World.
Your Women Walk the World event is the perfect time to educate your community about the importance of the work of ACWW and why it is vital for the empowerment of rural women. This is also a key fundraising opportunity, and explaining ACWW's Pennies for Friendship model can show supporters that little donations spread over our vast network can ensure that ACWW continues its vital work.
This year, ACWW and it's members have been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Because member societies are rightly following WHO and government guidelines and not having meetings, we have seen a decrease in donations to the enabling fund of ACWW: Pennies for Friendship. You will know that our projects donations (The Women Empowered Fund) are restricted to only funding projects and their direct associated costs, so all the other work of ACWW is reliant on Pennies for Friendship. This includes UN representation and participation, promotional and educational materials like the magazine and leaflets, research, Board members' outreach, board and committee meetings, and staffing. While ACWW has financial security because of our reserves, we need our members to help ensure that ACWW is able to continue all of it's vital work, this year and beyond. Please ensure that you are following the relevant local guidelines for Covid-19 safety.
If you would like to have a personalised fundraising page for your event, where your supporters can give donations directly through our online portal, please
It is better for ACWW if you use a fundraising page hosted by us, as opposed to JustGiving or GoFundMe, because those sites charge higher fees on each transaction, meaning less of your money goes to the cause.
A great way to tell a story quickly, these posters and PowerPoint Presentations can be shared, uploaded to social media, or printed and put up locally.
Your opportunity to raise money for ACWW, and direct your supporters to a personalised page which tells them all about your efforts in aid of Women Walk the World.
