In recognition of the 2007 theme of this UNCSW, “The elimination of all forms of discrimination and violence against the girl child”, Anglican Womens Empowerment announces a new Global Fund For Girls.
This fund will be used to support work and projects around the Anglican Communion which will enable girls 8-18 to have a better life. Whether the issue is rape, genital mutilation, trafficking, child marriage, domestic abuse, disease or war, girl children are less likely than boys to survive into adulthood and those who do are affected by these adverse conditions and practices for their entire lives.
As a faith based community, we add our support, our ideas, our time and treasure to the world wide movement to end violence and discrimination against all our girls.
To make a donation to the fund, make checks payable to DFMS and put girls fund in the memo line. Checks can be sent to Kim Robey, The Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave., NYC 10017.
