  • The third FAWCO Target Program, Education - Empowering Women and Girls through Knowledge and Skills, got off to a great start and 18 project applications were submitted.
  • FAWCO and The FAWCO Foundation Symposium and FAWCO Experience were successful events that gave FAWCO and the Foundation global exposure.

  • FAWCO hosted 116 delegates at the annual meeting in Frankfurt.
  • Fourteen FAWCOites attended CSW60 and FAWCO co-sponsored a panel at the CSW60 NGO Forum.
  • Seven FAWCO teens were hosted by AWC Dublin for the 2016 Cultural Volunteers Program.
