The Commonwealth Countries League is an accredited Commonwealth Organisation.
The Commonwealth Countries League involves people helping others who are in need, or those who are destitute, with acts of kindness. Those who have been helped often feel motivated to help others. The organisations who make charitable contributions have a small impact on the world at large. It is a beginning in raising the concerns of others.
The Commonwealth Countries League is a voluntary pan-Commonwealth civil society organisation. It was founded in 1925 by a group of women from many countries which make up today’s Commonwealth.
Message from Commonwealth Secretary General
In this year when we celebrate a 'Peace building commonwealth ', a special focus has been on peace in the home.As the foundation on which we build respect for the dignity and safety of all women and girls ,I have led a Commonwealth campaign to end domestic violence.
So it gives me great pleasure to write in support of the work of the Commonwealth Countries League ,and also encourage wider involvement with its immensely valuable work of empowering women and girls. Advancing social and economic inclusion through education ,and through more equitable opportunities for all, are high priorities in delivering on all values of our Commonwealth Charter.
