Alex Women's Charity
The Alex Women's Charity supports women who suffer from domestic violence, poverty or physical illness that leaves them vulnerable. We help women maintain their dignity through independent living.
Founded in 1901, the charity is run by alumnae and students at Alexandra College. The Alex girl has always extended a helping hand towards women who need a bit of extra help.
We fundraise to maintain our commitment to the women we help. Without donations, the charity would cease to exist.
Working with Students
We encourage the students at Alexandra College to do charitable work in their community. A vital part of their education is learning that positive actions have positive effects. The TY students do lots of AWC charity work. This mural was their favourite project this year; painting an 'Enchanted Forest' on a plain garden wall in a local Refuge to cheer up the children living there.
