World Woman's Christian Temperance Union







The code of ethics  gives guidelines  which serve as a foundation for action and cooperation within the

World Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WWCTU) as an organization, as well as with external partners.

v             Respect

v             Fairness/Justice

v             Loyalty

v             Reliability

v             Democracy

One must treat others as one would like to be treated.   Adhering to such core values within the

To reach these objectives, the WWCTU continues to:
