MEWC Fundraising Appeal
"To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it"
Unlike many new organizations that cannot begin to offer services until they have financial support, MEWC has begun operating successfully with virtually no funding beyond the in-kind donation of services that it is already receiving. While MEWC will continue to embrace volunteerism and in-kind support as a key part of its sustainability and strategic planning, we simply cannot expand our organisation, nor continue to offer the services already established without the income to cover the very real costs that we incur.
Our plan, with the assistance of our readers, is to introduce a staged development that will allow us to accommodate growth and ensure the stability of the organization over time.
Our efforts in promoting African women and girls rights have been recognised over the years. Apart from featuring on CNN’s African Voices, our Founder Rainatou Sow was named one of the "20 Youngest Power Women in Africa 2012" by Forbes Magazine. She was also awarded " The Most Inspirational Woman of the Year 2012" by Women4Africa.
