We are a grassroots movement that looks forward to, and actively works towards, a world where love and respect are the hallmarks of personal, community, national and international relationships. To this end we campaign to ensure children are protected within society, we promote gender equality and speak out on issues such as women’s education, early marriage and domestic violence. We facilitate good parenting, community development and strong marriages and work with the most marginalised communities in the world to bring health, education and training to eradicate poverty.
At times of distress and hardship Mothers’ Union members respond bringing relief from hunger and homelessness caused by natural disaster or conflict, or compassion to those who feel far from God.
