ACWW Study Topic 2017

June 16, 2017 11:01 pm

Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) is RWNZ’s topic of study for 2017. We have included an overview of the purpose of ACWW below, along with some links to further information.

RWNZ was one of the founding members of ACWW. It is one of the largest international development organisations for rural women.

The ACWW network allows it to engage at the local, national, and international level with the aim of achieving these goals:

– To raise the standard of living for rural women and their families through education, training and community development programmes.

– To provide practical support to our members and help them set up income-generating schemes.

– To support educational opportunities for women and girls, and help eliminate gender discrimination.

– To give rural women a voice at an international level through our links with UN agencies and bodies.
