Mary Ward International Australia (MWIA) is part of the Mary Ward International network established in 2002 to support the development works of the Loreto Sisters, and their colleagues, throughout the world.
Loreto is committed to working towards a more just world where there is tangible respect for the dignity of each person and equal opportunity for all. In particular, Loreto and MWIA work toward the empowerment of women and children.
The MWIA Volunteer Program allows those interested in our work for justice and development to become more involved and to share their skills, time and passion to improve the lives of people in Australia and overseas.
MWIA’s mission is:
to support the development works associated with the Loreto sisters and their colleagues as they empower women to transform structures and systems that keep them oppressed and marginalised.
