Mission

The Afghan Women Centre's mission is to empower socially isolated immigrant women within Montreal through creating programs according to their needs, facilitating self-development workshops and promoting team-based projects.

Our goal is to provide opportunities for women falling into the minority group, and to improve their quality of life through community engagement.

The Afghan Women Center wishes to give women a sense of belonging, a safe space for them to express themselves, and give them hope for a better future in Quebec society.

 

Objectives

The Afghan Women’s Centre’s purposes are:​

  • To provide information sessions to members & connect them to useful resources to build a strong community of trust & support; 

  • Put in place activities that will foster our member’s social skills and break their social isolation.  

  • To provide immigrant and refugee women with opportunities that will allow them to find employment.

Activities

Understanding and responding to the vulnerabilities of seniors, we offer intergenerational activities such as: social exchange, transference of skills, and creating opportunities to develop leadership roles.

 

AWC offers a variety of activities dedicated to seniors in order to promote a healthier lifestyle and mental well-being among them. These activities include a walking group, Yoga classes, and info sessions on health topics. 

The Centre offers courses and workshops, as described on the "Project and Services" page of this site. All courses and workshops are offered free of charge and, in addition, transportation costs are generally covered by the Centre. There are an average of fifteen to twenty women per class and they come from various communities (e.g. Iranian, Moroccan, and Pakistani)
