We go beyond borders
In 2020 PAWA will be supporting 12 projects in 8 countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
PAWA raises funds through its supporters, donors, events and online campaigns. PAWA aims to bring together individuals, trusts, foundations and corporations to help support a portfolio of small grassroots projects that empower women through education.
We are serious about project selections
Each year, charitable projects are proposed by PAWA’s international network of supporters. All proposals are carefully vetted and checked by the PAWA Projects Committee following strict guidelines before presenting them to PAWA Trustees for the selection process. Selected projects are carefully monitored by PAWA’s Projects Committee and are visited by its supporters throughout the year as opportunities arise.
Where the money goes
Since PAWA’s inception, its administrative expense ratio is less than 5%. Over 95% of our income is donated to support underprivileged teenage girls’ education in Asia.
