ACWW Project 1033 - Fundraising Lunch

There will be an ACWW Fundraising Ploughman's Lunch on Monday 29 October to be held at Lenham Community Centre, Groom Way, Lenham, Kent ME17 2QT

We are fortunate that both Ruth Shanks, the World President of ACWW and Tish Collins, the Chief Executive Officer will be joining us at this talk about the work of ACWW and in particular the project West Kent Federation is supporting this year. West Kent has pledged to raise £4451 to Project 1033 - Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness in India.

This is the inauguration of Project 1033 by the Central & South Asia President - Thilaka Perera

ACWW has granted funding to the Socio - Economic Development Association (SEDA) for this project which tackles an important issue as in conservative areas of India sexual and reproductive health is a taboo subject. The project will reach 415 vulnerable women and girls giving them better knowledge of their bodies and awareness of the health services available to them. This will enable them to have a more positive experience of pregnancy and childbirth. 

If the WI would like to fundraise for the project please send money raised through to Federation, adding a donation at the bottom of your quarterly invoice marked ACWW Project.

Another way to raise funds is to recycle. ACWW has joined up with a recycling company so bring along the following items to the lunch; foreign coins, notes, old stamps, mobile phones, unwanted jewellery and old watches. 

All the profit from the lunch day will go to ACWW.

Applications for tickets will be in later editions of West Kent News
