Rising up and responding to overseas needs lie at the core of our DNA.
In fact, this is how CBWOQ came to be.
Today, we continue that heritage through intentional partnerships – coming alongside ministries who support vulnerable women; children and youth at risk; and those who do relief and community development work.
Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM)
Every year, we raise funds for specific international projects run by CBM that focus on vulnerable women; youth and children at risk; and relief and community development. This fundraising is our primary way of supporting CBM.
For 2023 we’ll raise funds for widows in South Sudan and youth at risk in Bolivia.
Read up on these projects here.

Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM)
Alongside CBM, we helped establish and continue to support the Muriel Harrington Scholarship Fund. – set up in memory of Muriel Harrington, one of our most loved Ontario-based Canadian Baptist missionaries who served in Bolivia for decades.
This Fund supports female theological students in their studies at the Baptist seminary in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
This year, 17 students, ages 20 – 65+ have received scholarships to start of continue their studies.

Canadian Baptist Women (CBW)
We (CBWOQ) are one of 4 women’s organizations that make up Canadian Baptist Women. Together, we collaborate with CBM on projects which empower Baptist women from around the world – through international scholarships and grants.
We fundraise for projects through the Great Canadian Bible Study and support leadership development through scholarships given to international female theological students pursuing graduate programs.
