Happy New Year – January Edition

Welcome to the first edition of the monthly Global Woman Newsletter this year.  Global Woman Newsletter wishes you a Happy New Year, and looks forward to keeping you informed on a monthly basis this New Year.

Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation (GWPF) wishes you a Happy New Year and welcomes our readers and supporters to 2020!  It is our hope that you had a wonderful holiday season, and we are looking forward to a prosperous year ahead.  The organization is excited to begin a new year and a new decade, which is also the 10th anniversary of the founding of Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation.  With enthusiastic friends and supporters, it is a delight to enter the 10th year of serving women and girls.  We thank you for making it possible for us to have achieved some of our goals.  We could not have accomplished what we have in the last decade without your support.  GWPF has great plans for this year, so continue to read our newsletter the first Tuesday of each month, to stay updated as the news unfolds during the course of the year.  We look forward to working with you in 2020, together, helping to make it a productive and successful year.  Here are some of the January 2020 activities we have in the life of GWPF.

We will be making some changes to this newsletter in the coming months for the benefit of our readers.  Instead of having one lengthy article, we will have brief columns of various voices and topics.  Our readers will have the opportunity to hear directly from survivors of FGM, the community, and advocates.  If there is something you would like to see included in our monthly newsletter, please feel free to inform us.

Later this month, we plan to launch our official fundraising and registration page for the 2020 Walk To End FGM.  Yes, this event is not scheduled to take place until October 17th; however with an early launch, we will have 10 months to prepare participants, speakers, guests and awardees for their travels.  Please read the February edition of Global Woman Newsletter for details about the registration launch.

The 2020 Support Group Workshop will return on Saturday, January 18th.  We will be sending out an announcement and individual invitations will go out as early as next week.  If you are a survivor of FGM or you believe that you are at risk of it being done to you, please contact Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation at info@globalwomanpeacefoundation.org to have your name added to the invitation list.

GWPF welcomes your continued support in 2020.
