A Brief History

The organisation had its beginnings in 1931 with the rise in the Indian Independence movement. British women who had lived in India encouraged leading London organisations to co-operate with India’s emerging women’s movements through delegates to the conferences being held on the future of the country. This activity moved through initial support for women’s education, and providing courses in child care in the UK, to supporting regional training courses on the care of disabled children, thus becoming The Women’s Council of today. From these beginnings, we celebrate over 90 years of Friendship, Understanding and Co-operation between women of Asia, Asia Pacific and The Middle East and the United Kingdom.

A Message from the Chairman

It gives me the greatest pleasure and honour to accept my role as Chair for The Women’s Council. I am deeply overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness and encouragement to help such a vital Charity as The Women’s Council.

I promise to wholeheartedly continue and passionately support the work that TWC does to improve the care of disabled children and their families within their own communities in Asia, Asia Pacific and The Middle East at the same time promoting friendship and cooperation. I am grateful that I will be able to give service to this reputable organisation that has impressed me so much along the years.
