FAWCO’s Resolutions and Recommendations for 2017 – 2019 establish our commitment to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of education, the environment, health and human rights. Therefore, our Global Issues Teams focus on these four issues. The Global Issues Teams serve as a resource for our members. As you read the information in these pages, you might decide to get involved in one of the Teams. Join our team; pursue your passions.


June 2019: 4 Pillars of global issues in FAWCO follow the priorities of United Nations Women.  They are: health, education, environment and human rights. AWC Berlin’s own Karen Castellon co-chairs the FAWCO Human Rights team, serving as a vehicle to share ideas among member clubs, educate and advocate on relevant issues, and increase involvement on campaigns such as 16 Days of Ending Violence Against Women, Nov. 25-Dec. 10; One Billion Rising-Feb. 14; International Women’s Day-March 8, World Refugee Day-June 20. What can you do?  We would like to increase the AWC Berlin participation in FAWCO.  If you are interested in chairing a campaign for AWC-Berlin, your ideas & teaming are welcome.  If you would like to learn more about what women in the other 61 clubs are doing in any of these 4 areas, we can refer you to the team chairpersons.  Your world will only become larger and richer as you meet amazing individuals who are just doing their part in the world.
