“Memon Connections ‘MC” is a service specially designed to help Memon Families find Life partners for their sons and daughters.
We appreciate the need to retain our culture, heritage and close family connection and hence through this service we hope to keep the bonds of the International Community of Memons intact. In an age when the community is spread far and wide globally, there is a lack of social opportunities to meet prospective Memon marriage partners, and we hope to bridge this gap through “Memon Connections”.
MC provides a confidential matrimonial “introductions” service that ensures privacy and anonymity. Once a prospective Boy/Girls information is uploaded into the Data Base, Ladies Wing Representatives from all Chapters will thereafter assist the families to find what there are you are looking for. Choosing a partner is a difficult task, it is a meeting of minds, attitudes, values, life styles and family expectations and through MC, and we will do our best to make the search easier and productive

The spin off having this facility on our website has encouraged many parents to phone the facilitators requesting match making the orthodox way as many are still very conservative to the online approach. Many successful matches are accomplished this way
In addition to the International Projects, the Ladies wings at Local Chapter level have their own separate programs to encourage the participation of the Ladies in the WMO Activities
