ACWW  -  THE GUATEMALA PROJECT  ‘Fertilise your Future’.  

Thank you for all your recent donations, our fund is growing well and we now have over £2,000 towards our target of £2,900 for this Project.  Our fund has been helped by all of you who came to the ACWW Walk in March. In  ‘Around the County’ there is a report from Eakring WI, who held an ACWW themed evening – a great idea and one which you might like to copy in your WIs.  I can provide lots of information about ACWW and the Projects we have supported.  

For the Guatemala Project, £113 will provide training for one young women to train in a skill of her choice, it might be hairdressing, catering or IT.  

  • It is now time to have your Coins for Friendship donations ready to either send into County House or bring to the Annual Federation Meeting on April 26.  Your donations will support Projects around the World.   THANKYOU Helen Crowder, ACWW Rep.

  • Resolution Information Meeting; This meeting on Tuesday 10 April, 2.00pm – 4.00pm at County House is for delegates attending the Annual meeting or for WIs who organise their Resolution meeting for themselves.

All your donations should be sent to County House and will be acknowledged. Cheques should be made payable to ACWW and be accompanied by a note saying they are for the Guatemala Project.   THANK YOU.       Helen Crowder, ACWW Rep.
