Stitching Lives Together

We provide a one-stop safe haven for refugee women of all cultures,
who are seeking a space for spiritual, mental, and physical healing.

About Us

AMANI WOMEN CENTER (AWC) fills a very important gap for the work we do in the refugee community by providing culturally sensitive programs and services to the different ethnic groups represented in Clarkson, Georgia. Crucial to the AWC’s work is a holistic, culturally informed, and collaborative approach. AWC believes in the value of creating trusting relationships on a person-to-person basis to identify community needs and obstacles to develop effective solutions that empower and strengthen the community. 

Our mission is to empower and educate refugee women through culturally tailored programs that contribute to their economic security and overall wellbeing.
