TAIPEI, Taiwan -- PPSEAWA International's 26th International Triennial Conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2016. PPSEAWA Taiwan is going to present the results of the local Low-Carbon Community Project at the conference, said PPSEAWA Taiwan yesterday.
IT MAY look like a normal tea party with women laughing and sharing stories with one another over tea and delicious Malay kuih, but this group, however, is the backbone of a lesser heard non-governmental organisation.
The Pan-Pacific and South-East Asia Women’s Association of Malaysia (PPSEAWA) is the only international women’s organisation devoted to families, peace and understanding in the Pacific and South-East Asia.
Over 100 participants packed the auditorium at the Corboy Law Center of Loyola University in Chicago on September 3, 2014, for a seminar on the “Human Trafficking of Women and Girls - Global Strategies”. PPSEAWA partnered with the Center for the Human Rights of Children (CHRC) at Loyola University in Chicago and the International Women’s Associates, Inc. (IWA) to present this seminar.
PPSEAWA members from Australia, Fiji, Hawaii, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand, as well as USA members from Boston, Chicago, New York, and Toledo attended the Welcome Reception at the Drake Hotel in Chicago hosted by PPSEAWA USA and the Chicago Chapter on September 1, 2014. After warm welcomes from our three hosts, International President Teresa Hintzke, USA President Taina Woodward, and Chicago Chapter President Gisela Blumeneau, we enjoyed a wonderful presentation by Bob Andresen on Chicago’s history and architecture over wine and hors d’oeuvres.
