Since 1935, the NFWCP has been establishing nursery and kindergarten in schools. They were also involved in putting up the Girls Scouts of the Philippines.

Villar also said NFWCP has also pushed for inclusion of women in the police force and the armed forces, improvement of the welfare of women deprived of liberty through the establishment of the Correctional Institute for Women. It is also on the forefront of commemorating Women’s Month.
