What is FAWCO?
Founded in 1931, FAWCO (Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas) is a UN-accredited NGO (non-governmental organization) and umbrella organization for some 65 women’s clubs in 35 countries worldwide, with a total membership of around 12,000. Member clubs include American and international clubs such as ours. FAWCO seeks to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, specifically in the areas of human rights, health, education, and the environment. It contributes to the global community through its Task Forces and FAWCO Foundation, which provides development grants and education awards. Since 1997, FAWCO has held special consultative status to the UN Economic and Social Council. From 2016-2019, its focus will be on Education, as a path to empowerment, mobility, and freedom. As MIWC is a member of FAWCO, all members of MIWC are also FAWCO members. FAWCO says: everyone can make a difference; together we make change!

The MIWC takes great pride in supporting the lives of women in our community. One of the wonderful ways that has been accomplished is through the support and funding of the domestic abuse shelter Frauenhaus Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. München. This October the MIWC is pleased to welcome as our guest speaker, the Frauenhaus administrator. She has devoted over 25 years of her life at the shelter and has witnessed the struggles and challenges of those living through such devastating circumstances. She will share how your contributions have improved the lives of the women and children living at Frauenhaus, creating a safer environment upon which to build a more successful future.
Due to the nature of her work and potential security issues we will not divulge the name of our speaker.
