Established in 1985, the National Council of Women Development Organization is a Registered Charitable Organization. NCWCDO is dedicated to the support of projects, in Canada and in developing countries, which are directed to educational and social welfare programs to improve the quality of life for women and their families.  Funds have been raised and contributed by NCWCDO to both international and Canadian projects. In the past years, NCWCDO has supported programs in Canada, India, and Africa and is unique in that as it helps to empower women, at the same time, it provides opportunities for NCWC’s provincial and local councils to interact on a national and global level.
