About World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisation
World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisation (WUCWO) was founded in 1910 and now represents 100 Catholic women’s organizations worldwide, and is active in 66 countries including all continents and some island states, representing more than five (5) million Catholic women of every walk of life. The organization’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 evangelization 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. In 2006, WUCWO was erected by the Holy See as a Public International Association of the Faithful. This canonical status honours the efforts of faithful Catholic women active in the Union at the parish, diocesan, national and international levels. WUCWO unites Catholic women in the world to give them a voice on the international platform.
