We are very excited to annouce this week that ACWW Central Office has reopened! We have put in place social distancing procedures and increased cleaning routines, and we are following WHO guidelines on keeping our staff safe. Whilst we are not currently open to visitors, we are back at our desks!

Throughout lockdown our staff members worked from home, doing their best to ensure we kept ACWW moving forward, and dealing with enquiries from members globally. There has inevitably been a minor backlog, and we are working to clear this as quickly as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact Central Office if you have any questions, or need information.

Thank you for continued support, enthusiasm, and kind messages that have been received!

Have you ever wondered what advocacy work ACWW has actually done, or struggled to explain our advocacy to others? We've created this for you. As Women Walk the World approaches, and we look toward raising funds for Pennies for Friendship, it is important that we all understand why advocacy is vital for ensuring the sustained impact of all other initiatives, including projects. The success of our projects is directly dependent on impactful, strategic advocacy, because it is through advocacy that we can change the context in which rural women live and work, ensuring long-term, lasting progress.
