About Us

 

The World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations (WUCWO) was founded in 1910 and now represents 100 Catholic women’s organisations worldwide, active in 66 countries including all continents and some island states, representing more than five (5) million Catholic women of every walk of life. WUCWO’s aim is to promote the presence, participation and co-responsibility of Catholic women in society and the Church, in order to enable them to fulfil their mission of evangelisation and to work for human development, particularly in increasing educational opportunities, poverty reduction and the advancement of human rights beginning with the fundamental right to life.
