Label: Cooperation Circle Info

25 Members

Traditions: Jewish, Islam, Christian, Hindu

Action Area: Women

Region: Multi-Region

Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to provide an interactive global network for women's projects to be realized locally and globally.

WIN URI was founded at the URI Global Council Meeting in May 2006. One of our CC's first service projects was to donate funds to help support services coordinated by two of our members, Joyce Ng'oma and Shakun Vaswani. Joyce is leading a series of visitations to women prisoners of different faiths in Malawi, to assist the women with hygiene, mental health and education. This project inspired our members to agree to research the situation of women prisoners in our own countries, with a view to identifying interfaith service opportunities.

Our dream is to demonstrate the power of women to nurture and strengthen women's projects throughout the world with the support and assistance of men.
