WOW-Asia pushing forward

Since WOW-Asia was founded in 2015 it has really worked hard to re-establish contacts with the former ABCW member-organisations in Asia. This has resulted in positive growth in membership and numerous activities implemented. Both on regional level as well as on national level.

To show the effect of WOW-Asia an overview of activities undertaken follows:

The BSCWF-Bangladesh conducted a Labor Law Course and a Regional Women’s Conference in the month of November 2018. While in the early part of December, the BSCWF held their National Orientation of Trainers.

About WOW

WOW was founded as a Social Christian trade union and finds inspiration in the spiritual believe that man and universe were created by God or by persuasions coinciding with that. The increase of intercultural contacts provided opportunities for the WOW to expand and broaden its view with visions of other religious backgrounds. WOW does so in a joint attempt to build a world community based on freedom, dignity, justice and solidarity.
