Changing lives, communities and futures with funding for projects overseas whose aim is supporting, training and equiping women and girls.
Each year MWiB donates £10,000 in Empowerment Gifts, working closely with All We Can, WFM&UCW and Global Relationships Partnership Coordinators to identify suitable projects supporting work with women overseas. Applications are also welcomed from others, but must be submitted via your district’s Forum rep.
We cannot fund building work, and suggested projects should be in accordance with the aims and objectives of MWiB:
~ The advancement of the Christian faith – seeking “to know Christ and to make him known”.
~ To develop the capacity and skills of women members of the Methodist Church, to enable them
to participate fully in the life of the church and in society.
~ To combat injustice and poverty in local communities and around the world.
The closing date for Empowerment Gift applications is 31st July; applications will be discussed by the MWIB Executive and brought to the Forum for approval at their September meeting.
