Our Programs


The very heart of our commission is to work with multicultural women to build their capacity and advocate for themselves by building their voices. We want to see women participating in, and contributing to our community.

The VIRWC is the best, safest, most inclusive and welcoming space for multicultural women around Melbourne. We have been active and successful for over 22 years.

We want to see women speaking up. We want to see women standing up. We want to see the wider community respect women’s voice, culture, identity, rights, and aspirations. We want to see women advocating, championing and being heard in all the issues that, in any matter, affect them.

This is our work, VIRWC teams work on the ground consistently bringing women together through different programs such as Women Circles, Multicultural Playgroups, and Global Kitchen activities. We organize weekly and annual events and deliver our unique training in health, respectful relationships, cultural awareness leadership, and employment pathways. These programs skill up women to build changes and accomplish what they want and deserve in their lives.

We are here to provide a better space for multicultural women and for that, we must work, talk, learn and be visible together.
