Eva Organization for Women (EOW) is a registered UK charity (charity number 1156347), whose aim is to empower people who are in charitable need, in particular women, their families and young people to have a positive impact on the world in which they live.
Through close collaborations with many different sector experts, bilingual community leaders and talented spokespersons, EOW advocates the development of these individuals to help to make their future brighter; to gain access equal rights and opportunities; to excel educationally; to acquire and maintain physical and mental health; to become more ‘politically aware’ citizens and to become socially and economically advanced within their communities.
EOW strongly believes that everybody has the right to learn, and to enjoy physical, mental and spiritual well-being, and that the health and the well-being of individuals, families and communities as a whole are intertwined.
Furthermore, EOW aims to build a strong networking system (through our FORUM, available on our website) that enables these individuals regardless of their background, to exchange and share their experiences, information, knowledge, wisdom and skills so that they can inspire, encourage and motivate one another and become role models for the next generations.
Our specific aims are:
. To identify the important issues faced by women, their families and young people – as part of EOW’s engagement and empowerment projects.
. To advance awareness of women’s values, rights and well-being in society. And also to promote the idea that progress in education doesn’t mean that women will abandon the family and cultural values important to them in those communities that sometimes view an educated woman can as a threat.
. To continue the development of EOW’s local and overseas projects.
Our specific objectives are:
. To create an open and safe environment for women, their families and young people to discuss issues that matter to them in private and public arenas, through the use of conferences, workshops, seminars, online forums and in one to one discussion.
. To enable the support of these individuals through higher education, public health awareness and employment opportunities through our workshops, etc.
. To promote integration, social cohesion, cultural exchange and social networking opportunities at regular events/conferences and meetings (etc.) as part of our English Heritage project.
. To offer essential services, such as micro credit loans to women and sponsoring orphans and under-privileged children by paying their school fees, as part of our outreach programme in developing countries.
. To advance our library project – “Operation Read-to-Learn”– as part of our pledge to improve access to knowledge and empowerment of communities and nations.
