Women`s Voluntary Defence Organization

The Naiskodukaitse  (Women`s voluntary defence organization) is a women's organization in which every woman can find an educational or challenging experience. Every member receives basic training, chooses additional courses based on her choice of specialty, and can participate in sports and take part in military activities and different social events. The members’ training and organizational activity aims to assist the Kaitseliit (Defence League), so each member can play a part in developing national defence and making society better in general. The basic training includes an organizational introduction, medical training, field catering, and basic military training.
