Women Walk the World in Martinborough 

April 10, 2018 April 2018 No Comments

Join Martinborough Rural Women New Zealand members on the ”Rapaki Hillside Walk”, Sunday 29th April. Meet 10am at the start of the walk on Shooting Butts Rd. Fundraiser by Gold coin donation.

This is an annual event, where women’s groups in many countries organise walks in their communities along local tracks and trails, to raise funds for the work of Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW).

It’s a day to come together, catch up with friends and have some fun and healthy exercise along the way.

ACWW connects rural and non-rural women and their communities worldwide through a network of Member Societies (includes RWNZ) and Individual Members. It offers small grants to women-led organisations active in urban and rural communities. Projects must be for the benefit of women and children and current funding priorities include: literacy and basic education, food security and nutrition, maternal health, access to water and sanitation, income-generating business and skills.

Enquiries contact Viv Malneek 027 5358805, or Liz Hancock 06 3088812
