Clubs in Motion is a FAWCO initiative to encourage members to stay physically fit so let’s get moving! Our first activity is a Casual Cycling Ride on 12 February 2023. Keep an eye on the AWCB Events page for future upcoming activities.

The Target Program 2023-2025

The Target Project Environment Selection Committee is proud to announce the three shortlisted proposals (in alphabetical order) for the FAWCO Target Project Environment 2023–2025:

Awesome Blossoms: Edible Fresh Fields for Sustainable Life in the Slums, a project of Safe Spaces Organization, submitted by Leslie Janoe, AWC Amsterdam;

Love for the Sea, a project of Caribbean Coral Restoration Center, submitted by Robin Goldsby, AIWC Cologne;

Wing Woman, a project of Stand for Women, submitted by Monica Jubayli, AWC Lebanon.

Please visit The Three Shortlisted Target Project Proposals to read the project summaries and to learn more about the selection process. During the first two weeks of February, the AWCB will have the opportunity to vote for the project they would most want to support. Send a message to if you wish to show your support for one of the projects.

Upcoming FAWCO Events

The 2023 FAWCO Biennial Conference will be hosted by AWA Vienna in Bratislava, Slovakia on March 23-26, 2023. AWCB/FAWCO Members can find out more details about the conference on the FAWCO website.

February 16, Thursday at 19:00 - Global Issues Book Discussion Series (on zoom)

In the Time of Butterflies by Julia Alvarez is a fictionalized account of the lives of the three Mirabalsisters, Patria, Maria Teresa and Minerva, who were murdered on orders from dictator Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic on November 25, 1960 – and of a fourth sister, Dedé, who survived.

The United Nations and human rights activists around the world now mark November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

This book will give us an opportunity to reflect on the origins of the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence against women and girls and to UNITE our efforts to “mobilize all society to become activists for the prevention of violence against women.”

Please register online in advance for this meeting.
