Book Build Launch Event

Since the founding of the Afghan Women’s Center (AWC), we have welcomed many immigrant women from diverse communities. Our book, “Immigrant Women’s Stories”, is a growing collection of their personal immigration experiences, featuring stories of women who left their home countries in hopes of a better future in Canada. They faced several obstacles during their travels and a lot of time, energy, and money was spent to bring them here. Upon arrival, they continued to encounter challenges such as adapting to a new society, learning new languages and finding jobs, all while raising their children.
