FOUNDER and Director of Hope for Girls and Women Tanzania (HGWT),Rhobi Samwelly last week in Luxembourg was able to meet with many of the FAWCO team at their Interim Meeting.
This included the FAWCO board, the FAWCO Foundation Board and representation of the FAUSA boards as well as Tharien van Eck who has been such a champion of our cause.

FAWCO serves as a resource and a voice for its members; seeks to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of human rights, health, education and the environment; advocates for the rights of US citizens overseas; contributes to the global community through its Teams and The FAWCO Foundation, which provides Development Grants and Education Awards.

The organization is a global women’s NGO (non-governmental organization), and since 1997, FAWCO has held special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Counci

"It was a long overdue opportunity to meet many of the ladies who have been supporting Hope for Girls and Women’s work over the last two years.

"When we were selected for FAWCO’s Target project in early 2020, we were so excited. But we never would have anticipated just how important their financial and emotional support, as well as passion for our work would be. As the world went into various forms of lock-down, we, like charities all around the world, were thrown into even more challenging situations.
"We had unanticipated cutting seasons so an increase in girls arriving at our safe houses, a reduction in visitors and volunteers and the support or awareness that brings, we needed to be even more on top of sanitation than ever with even more girls, and we had to pause a number of our important outreach initiatives.

"Thank you so much for your unwavering support during this time FAWCO we’ve made friends for life and you are welcome to visit us in Tanzania to see how you have helped so many girls,"She said.
