We believe in empowerment. We also believe in delivering change! Change that translates into dignity, not destitution! Imagine what it’s like to flee your home in fear. To arrive in a new country with nothing but your life. At AWC, we provide practical support and guidance through various programs and services for refugee women who are resettling in Clarkson Georgia, having fled conflict and persecution.
