the international Mothers' Union
Mothers' Union was introduced to Kigezi in 1931 and in 1964, it was incorporated with the Mary Sumner, London (Worldwide headquarters). Mothers' Union is partly assisted by Mary Sumner House, London. Under Mothers' Union, women have been mobilised to help in building strong families and Churches. There is also a programme for Christian women which ministers to women who are not married in the church.
There is another program, The Marriage Encounter, that helps married couples to build and strengthen marriages. This emphasises "growing together as a couple."
Mothers' Union now has 92 branches in the Diocese with roughly 19,000 members. The Union runs a school for school girl dropouts, a canteen, a women's education centre and grassroots projects for individuals and women groups.
Mrs. Laura Katwesigye, wife of Bishop Katwesigye, is the President of Mothers' Union, Kigezi Diocese.
