FAWCO has just launched its new Target cycle on EDUCATION!  In celebration of this theme, the 2017 Friendship Quilt will embrace the world and all of its schoolhouses.  Some of them are no more than a shady spot under a tree but they all contain tomorrow!

If you're interested in contributing a square to the 2017 quilt, please click the link below for detailed instructions on EXACTLY how to make a quilt square for inclusion in this very rewarding project.

Spring is here, bringing longer days filled with sunshine, flowers and warmth. Spring is also the time for graduations and, of course, Mother's Day!

Looking for the perfect gift for your high school/college graduate or Mom? What better way to honor a young graduate (or your Mom who taught you everything) than with the gift of education.

Consider making a donation to the FAWCO Target Program, now focusing on education, or to The FAWCO Foundation for an Education Award or Development Grant.

Your gift of education will make a tremendous difference in the life of a young girl - a gift for which she will be eternally grateful. Everyone deserves an education; you can help make that happen.
