Open/Close Menu Women's International Zionist Organisation


WIZO enriches the lives of children and youngsters in Day Care centres and schools, provides a framework for youth in its network of youth clubs and one-on-one assistance for teenage girls in distress and victims of domestic violence who obtain psychological counselling, rehabilitative care and legal assistance.

WIZO Victoria welcomes new President Helen Granek.‘As the new President of WIZO Victoria, I am continuing my personal WIZO journey. A journey that began with my mother, a new immigrant, who immediately joined WIZO Kinnereth. WIZO empowers and facilitates opportunities to effect change in society and I would like my family, particularly my daughter, daughter-in-law and granddaughters to see that I am involved with a community who are initiators, doers and most of all givers.’

WIZO Victoria also welcomes Dione Phillips to the position of Executive Director. Dione has worked at a global Pharmaceutical company, specialising in Marketing and Events and holds a Bachelor of Business Degree in Marketing and Human Resource Management. ‘I have a passion for women’s empowerment and having two primary school aged children I understand the importance of children’s education and well-being. I have been truly inspired by the women volunteers and the projects in Israel funded by WIZO. I’m looking to bring a fresh outlook to WIZO and build our awareness in the community’.

WIZO is recognised by the United Nations as a Non-Government Organisation, with consultative status on ECOSOC and UNICEF.
