As a retired MSW I was looking for a special unique way I could help bring peace to the world through cultural understanding and education. A year ago i started the first DFW chapter in southern oregon and continue as its chapter leader. Why this organization??? I love the concept of collective giving to make a difference in womens lives all over the world as we learn about a country, its people and a unique NGO every month. Not only do we raise money , but travel trips are offered to visit these organizations to see the work they are doing, and best of all is the dvd and packet of information I receive each month to educate local women here about what is happening in female sexual trade, female clitorectomy , microloans, educational resources, and domestic violence abroad. DFW also is set up in regions of the USA and World so we have regional leaders and instant help with our local groups..... And most of all there is no pressure to give a certain dollar amount each month or year which is very unique in my many decades of volunteering. I hope others reading these posts will be moved to join or start their own chapter. Jeannie Matthews
