On International Women’s Day, enable an AUW woman on her mission to #PressForProgress

Dear Friends,

As many of you are aware, International Women’s Day (March 8, 2018) is a global occasion celebrating the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women, while also marking a call to action to accelerate gender parity.

This year’s worldwide theme for International Women’s Day, #PressForProgress, is perfectly aligned with Asian University for Woman’s (AUW) mission to leverage women’s education as a catalyst for global change.

In celebration of this global rallying call, the AUW Support Foundation is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Thursday, March 8th in collaboration with our support groups around the world. With your help, we hope to gain the resources to underwrite scholarships for 10 students who urgently need funding to continue their education at AUW.

Though we know that a number of organizations will be vying for your donation on this day, we hope that you will remember the mission of AUW when you consider where to direct your personal commitment to #PressForProgress on March 8th.

At US$15,000 per scholarship, our total fundraising goal is US$150,000. By telling the personal stories of our outstanding students in need and calling on our generous AUW supporters all over the world, we hope to reach our goal and beyond to benefit as many deserving women as possible.

Our students are diverse, courageous, empathetic, and above all – united in their passion to generate positive change.  For your support of International Women’s Day, help an AUW student on her mission to #PressForProgress by donating to her education—where progress begins.
