The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women is an international, church-related organisation that is active in 30 European countries. EFECW is a network of women from all Christian Traditions. EFECW was founded in 1982 in Gwatt Switzerland. Its main aims are:
- to strengthen the ecumenical network of women
- to help women to find the common European identity
- to challenge women to action
This happens through educational workshops, meetings, publications about issues like: Ecumenical Learning, Political Learning, Management, Ethic-Ecological Training and projects of Reconciliation.
All women, both on European and national level, work on a voluntary basis.
