Development/Trees

AIWCC Development and Tree Projects 1996-2019

AIWCC started contributing to development projects, in addition to numerous charity projects, in 1996. These were with funds raised over and above regular fund-raising activities for charity and were for one-time start-up funds for a specific purpose. Several projects were funded through DG grants from FAWCO.
In 2000 AIWCC were inspired to rename the tree planting activities The Millenium Forest, co-sponsored by FAWCO and recognized by the United Nations as a bona fide development project. The Environment Committee of FAWCO collected donations for this project from 2000-2010
