Our Values and Principles


1- Accept & Respect: The Arab Women of Waterloo Region organization embraces diversity and moves beyond tolerance to acceptance in order to reach its goals. We treat our people equally and provide equitable opportunities to women and girls, regardless of backgrounds, religious or political beliefs.

2- Care: Our organization is firmly committed to enhancing the well-being of the Arab women in Waterloo Region. We aspire to foster the full integration and participation of the Arab women into Canadian society.

3- Engagement:  Inequalities caused by dependency. By providing educational workshops, valuable awareness, and practical training, we empower women and girls to be more independent and productive members of the community.


Our programs are entirely autonomous of any political, economic, religious or other objectives. Our program’s aim is to empower women and girls to work effectively hand-in-hand with their community members to change lives.
