Foreign students in Taiwan are invited to attend 4WCWS, application starts now!

The Garden of Hope Foundation invites foreign students in Taiwan to attend 4th World Conference of Women Shelters from November 5-7 2019 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan; and a pre-conference Youth Caucus on November 4, also in Kaohsiung. The main conference will bring together 1,500 people from 120 countries to network and share ideas on how to strengthen and end violence against women.

Our goal is to bring the next generation of feminists from all over the world to 4WCWS to learn, be inspired, network, and be empowered. Priority will be given to countries that are not yet represented at 4WCWS. The special offer for foreign students includes FREE registration, access to 4WCWS meetings, conference lunches and refreshments on November 6-7, and participation in the Youth Caucus pre-conference event.

4WCWS will be a wonderful forum for you to be inspired and energized with new knowledge and innovations in social work, advocacy, empowerment of women and girls, shelter management, and policy and strategy plans.
