FAWCO’s Human Rights Team will host a three-day virtual conference, Human Rights in Focus, from Thursday to Saturday, 4–6 November 2021 (15:00–21:00 CET).
The Conference is packed with 20 sessions designed:

  1. to raise your awareness of global human rights issues, such as human trafficking, domestic violence, child marriage, migration and how to create change for women and girls;
  2. to highlight the impact of FAWCO programs, such as the 2020–2022 Target Project, which aims to eliminate female genital mutilation in districts of Tanzania (click here for an interim report on the project);
  3. to provide opportunities for networking; and
  4. to bring you face to face with speakers from organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the CNN Freedom Project.

Learn how FAWCO is making a lasting impact to make the world a better place for women and girls. Go to the FAWCO website to download the agenda, read biographies of the speakers and sign up for the Conference.
