Our Objectives


BAWC inspires to raise the quality of life for all women regardless of their diverse backgrounds.

We will create new opportunities and skills through the advancement of education, employment, training and volunteering.

We will improve their health and well-being by providing culturally sensitive and socially integrated services.

We maintain that women are equal and will work towards eliminating gender discrimination and empowering women by providing support, advice, assistance and advocacy on behalf of those who cannot enable their own rights.
