To all of our donors, new and old:
The last year has been a big one for IWEN with many changes and now we have exciting news to share!
In case you missed the Annual General Meeting (AGM) this year, there was a motion and unanimous vote by the membership to change the name of Inter-cultural Women's Education Network (aka "IWEN") to Her International.
The decision for the name change was recommended by our Co-Executive Directors, Kate Phelps and Tamara McLellan and Admin and Finance Officer, Karen Hughes. It was whole-heartedly supported by the 2016 Board of Directors and our Founder, Michelle Bonneau.
This recommendation was made to change IWEN to a name that instantly, clearly and simply states the organization’s commitment to the advancement of women’s empowerment around the world.
While the name is changing, the organization’s projects, vision, and mandate will not. Her International is still committed to helping marginalized women and girls through education and life skills opportunities. Our approach continues to work at a grassroots level - partnering with on-the-ground experts and the participants themselves to develop truly needed and impactful projects. We are excited to build on this proud history of this small charity, to grow it and continue making a global impact.
We want to thank you for being interested in our organization. We couldn’t continue our work without you.

Gratefully and sincerely yours,
