The proceeds from the Annual Bazaar are used solely to support development projects throughout the world. These are small-scale projects with a clearly defined purpose in favour of disadvantaged children and young women in the fields of health, education, vocational training and/or security. Proceeds from the Children’s walk and other fundraising activities are used to fund 5-year scholarship programmes for secondary school students. Money is also given for disaster relief.  Applications for funding can only be submitted by a UNWG-Geneva member. To date the UNWG has been able to help about 2000 projects in over 100 countries with more than 7 million Swiss francs.
