AMANI WOMEN CENTER (AWC) enriches the lives of refugee communities in Georgia and empowers them in their new environment by providing educational programs, and a variety of social services. We serve these women and children once their resettlement services benefits end and when they are faced with the challenges of providing for themselves and their families. AWC fills this important gap by providing 3 unique programs utilizing a holistic approach designed to build and sustain healthy families within the home and the community.
• Amani Sewing Academy (AWC) - Workforce Development & Life Skills
• Healthy Families Program (HFP) - Support Services (Civic & Social)
• Leadership Program - (ACALP) - Amani Community Ambassadors.
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 provides a pathway that empowers and educates refugee women through culturally tailored programs that contribute to their economic security and overall wellbeing.
