Welcome to The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc.
The Country Women's Association of Victoria, Inc. is an organisation for country and city women living in Victoria and bordering towns. It is a vibrant Association aiming "to improve conditions by community service more especially as they affect the welfare of women and children".
The CWA is a self-funded volunteer philanthropic organisation with a focus on friendship, personal development and advocacy. The Association encourages advocating on: community issues; sustainable development and the protection of the environment; and social issues. The CWA also encourages supporting community and taking an interest in the workings of government at all levels. It awards educational grants and scholarships.
The CWA was formed on 12 March 1928 and today boasts over 5,600 members. Each member belongs to one of 320 branches state-wide that maintains its own program and is empowered to meet community needs.
