Dear Friends of the UNWG-Geneva,
Welcome to the new webpage of our organization.
The UNWG-Geneva is an apolitical charitable organization and its strategic priority is to provide assistance to women and children in need throughout the world through micro-projects and scholarships. To that end, we hold several annual fundraising activities in partnership with the UNOG and other International Organizations in Geneva, Permanent Missions and our sponsors.
The UNWG-Geneva follows major guidelines set by the United Nations as principals of peace and humanity. We believe in the work of the United Nations and its efforts. Indeed we are privileged to have an amazing mentor, our Honorary President and Director-General of the United Nations Office in Geneva, first woman to ever hold that post, Ms. Tatiana Valovaya. In addition, this year, a year of firsts, we are honored by yet another prominent actor of the International Geneva, HE Ambassador Lauber, Permanent Representative of Switzerland to the UNOG and other International Organizations in Geneva, as our Honorary President. With such duo and leadership, champions of gender equality, we intent to innovate and modernize our organization. Transformation is not necessarily an easy task, but it will be beneficial in the long run.
To our members and in our own humble way, we provide a safe space for friendship, peaceful communication and interaction between members of various countries and regions of the world. Our organization is proudly open to the world as a whole. We encourage diversity and thrive from the variety of our backgrounds. We believe in empowering each other and lifting up those in need, especially the children. We collaborate. We cooperate. We help build brighter futures for the less advantaged. In the grand scheme of things, it is a drop in the ocean, a small step, but every step counts. Your contribution counts. Help us build a better world by donating to our organization. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, enjoy the rest of your discovery into our world.
In the words of the great Lao Tzu: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. This very single step, that drop in the ocean, is one we, members of the UNWG take every day to improve the world for women and children wherever and whenever we can. What is life without giving? What is happiness without sharing? Join us in making the world a better place by donating to our cause!
