Description

The All Women ‘s Action Society (AWAM), an independent feminist non-profit organization, established in 1985. At AWAM, our focus is on victims and survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) such as rape, domestic violence and sexual harassment. We provide free counselling services and legal information, and this is open to all people in crisis, irrespective of gender. We also do public education and outreach with the aim of establishing a movement of people who are aware of the GBV issues facing society and want to eradicate the problems. AWAM also works directly with government agencies and ministry to advocate for policy change, understanding that positive change needs to happen in both society and legislation for sustainable holistic impact.

 

OUR VISION
AWAM envisions a just, democratic, and equitable society where all persons, in particular women, are treated with respect and are free from all forms of violence and discrimination. Based on feminist principles, we seek to achieve our vision by building a movement that informs, connects and mobilises towards:

  • securing women’s rights,
  • bringing about gender equality,
  • building capacities for women’s empowerment and social transformation ; and,
  • supporting women in crisis.

 

OUR MISSION
AWAM operates on the strength of a dynamic and dedicated group of members and staff who shape the direction and policies of the organization. As a collective, AWAM strongly believes in having an inclusive participatory and empowering organisational culture.

We are guided in our work and decision making by five core values:

  • Collectivism
  • Compassion and Respect
  • Courage
  • Equality and Justice
  • Integrity
