Giving Back to the Wider Community
As part of AAWE's commitment to the wider community, our charitable donations program aims to help bring about a brighter future, primarily for women and children, by providing aid to non-profit organizations and projects which address their education, health and social needs. In 2016, AAWE donated almost 4,000 euros from its fundraising proceeds, to Rafiki Ya Maisha, Gynécologues Sans Frontières, Room to Read, Friday Mission Lunch, Every Child is a Gem refugee program, Led by HER, Stand Up for School Girls in Malawi, SOS Help, Apatchworks and a special project with US Girl Scouts Overseas.
AAWE was proud to receive a Platinum Donor medal from FAWCO, following our fundraising for the Free the Girls program, as well as a Gold Donor medal following our fundraising for the Wells for Clean Water program in Cambodia. Other recipients of donations from AAWE included Association Halte Aide aux Femmes Battues, Friday Mission Lunch Program, SOS Help, American Aid Society, American Church in Paris Youth Program, Sport dans la Ville, AFEA Snehasadan and Rafiki Ya Maisha.
