The Women's Council
TWC (The Women’s Council) is a small registered charity which throughout its 85 years history, has worked with women of Asia and Asia Pacific to improve educational and other opportunities for women in poorer areas of the region.
For the last 16 years, TWC’s focus has been on supporting two Regional Training Courses, originally devised in co-operation with CIHD UK [Centre for International Health and Development UK.]
Funds raised from events held In the UK, enable TWC to support overseas training courses and workshops conducted in English or Arabic, in Asia and Asia Pacific. These events focus on inclusive education for children with special needs (such as visual impairment, hearing loss, physical disabilities and mental impairment either genetic or through injury by accident or at birth).
The support given to women taking part in a course covers the full cost of tuition and, in some cases, contributes to accommodation and travelling expenses. Men are welcome to join the courses; tuition is free to them, but they are expected to fund their own accommodation and travelling expenses.
For many years, TWC has been on supporting a training course which is held annually in Mumbai, conducted by TWC’s working partner ADAPT (Able, Disabled, All People Together), formerly the Spastics Society of India.
TWC has also supported a biennial Workshop held in the Middle East, for Arabic speakers, organized by SETI (Support to Education and Training in Inclusion) in partnership with Save the Children UK.
