The American Women’s Group in Paris is proud to be a founding member of FAWCO (The Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas), an international network of volunteer clubs and associations that advocates for improvements in the lives of women and girls worldwide.
Every year, we donate to FAWCO’s Target Program, a multi-year cycle of issue awareness and education, project monitoring, and review and evaluation. Past years have focused on the Malaria Program (2005-2009), the Tabitha Wells for Clean Water, Cambodia (2009-2013), and Free the Girls, Mozambique (2014-2017).
The 2017-2019 Target Project is Hope Beyond Displacement, providing education, vocational, and leadership training for urban refugee women and girls in Jordan.
