The International Women’s Group (IWG) has received a cheque of VT100, 000 from BRED Bank Vanuatu.

The IWG is a charitable association supporting the women and children of Vanuatu. Best known for their International Food Festival, a much-awaited annual event, they also aim to raise awareness about the rights and issues affecting women in Vanuatu.

This year the International Food Festival will take place on Saturday, 29th of October from 10 a.m. at Espace Alliance Française.

Funds raised will not only go towards rural community projects, such as refurbishing schools and dispensaries, but also equipping women with income-generating skills such as sewing and first aid training.

BRED Bank Vanuatu has been a long-term supporter and generous sponsor of IWG, and tis is reflected in the recent donation of VT100, 000.
