Our Story

A fledgeling organisation in 1952, DCWA was the brainchild of 36 inspired women who wanted to make a difference and aimed to foster social and cultural activities among the Indian women and those from the Commonwealth countries.


Since then, DCWA has spread its wings to become one of Delhi’s most reputed charity organisations, with a permanent membership of over 300 women and supported by the spouses of 154 international Heads of Missions. A large number of these members volunteer their time, efforts and enthusiasm towards making a change in the lives of those not as privileged.


Our efforts are funded entirely through donations and contributions from individuals and corporates and through our own fundraising initiatives. We receive no aid or grant from the government.
