WIZO is Israel's most active and influential social organization.
Main partner of the State of Israel in the field of education since its establishment in 1920 in Great Britain, WIZO works to promote the status of women and educate children and young people. It also works to strengthen Israeli society by improving the well-being of its underprivileged strata of all origins and all religions.
An apolitical Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), it brings together 50 federations on 5 continents and hundreds of thousands of volunteers.
Promote an egalitarian, just and enlightened society for all, supporting
the efforts and actions of WIZO World.
“Acting for priorities” is our “motto”, this is our motto.
To do this, our task is also to make people understand to what extent the “Israeli miracle” also rests on social assistance.
As a member of WIZO we are part of an apolitical sisterhood whose goal is to actively support Israel.
Our contribution connects us to a network of over 250,000 members
across the world who are committed to creating a better life for all who live in Israel, all religious and social backgrounds.
Founded in 1927 in Switzerland, WIZO is today present in Basel, Bern, Friborg, Geneva, La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Zürich and of course Lausanne.
All these Wizeans who come from different backgrounds, share,
beyond their attachment to the State of Israel, common values:
1. A will to act
2. A desire to participate
3. A desire to share
4. A need to transmit
Give hope ...
“The dedication of all your volunteers over the past 100 years is a vibrant example of the partnership that unites us!”.
In this brief address, President Rivlin wished WIZO a happy birthday and thanked Wizean women around the world!
