The American Women’s Association of Rome (AWAR) will host the FAWCO Biennial Conference in Rome, Italy In addition to the conference being our annual general meeting with reports from all facets of FAWCO business, AWAR and FAWCO present local and international speakers who will cover a variety of global and club-level issues. There will be an update on FAWCO's Target Program: human rights for women. A special panel of experts will address the issue of human rights for women and girls.  You will also hear more about FAWCO’s fundraising efforts for Free the Girls, the target project selected by FAWCO clubs last year.

The FAWCO Foundation will provide updates on their four core programs: education awards, development grants, NEEED scholarships and the FAWCO target project. It will also announce the 2015 education award and development grant recipients and host Foundation Night, their annual fun-raising evening. Rome, the Eternal City, is easy to reach so be prepared to catch FAWCO “Fever” at this Biennial Conference.
