We are a group of Arab women with diverse backgrounds and life stories. One thing we have in common is that we came to Canada at a later stage in life, and have faced many different challenges during our transition into Canadian society. By establishing the Arab Women of Waterloo Region we hope to help other women overcome similar challenges, by sharing our experiences and creating a safe social network.

Many Arab women, regardless of background, find themselves at one point or another in a place of isolation in Waterloo Region. This isolation is not always created by a lack of education, language skills or transportation, but rather by a disconnect that many women experience in to the Waterloo region. AWWR hopes to become the bridge that will connect these women, and help them to find purpose and resources, so that they will find themselves in a place where they feel included and accepted in the local community.
