“AIWA” (American International Women’s Association) is a volunteer, nonprofit, service-oriented women’s club founded in 1962. AIWA is a member of The Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas (FAWCO). FAWCO is a United Nations accredited NGO (non-governmental organization) with Special Consultative Status to the UN Economic and Social Council.
AIWA has a dual mission. The first is to support and encourage intercultural exchange and understanding. The second mission is to provide humanitarian assistance to those in need in the Rabat community. AIWA members are women of several nationalities who are motivated and dedicated to help the needy. Most of AIWA’s funds for humanitarian assistance come from organized fundraising events. The proceeds from these events go towards purchasing medicine, food, clothing, supplies for school children, and educational equipment for people who have no resources in hospitals, shelters, and orphanages. AIWA also encourages women and girls to seek education and aids in their training in developing income-generating activities.
Any woman whose English is sufficiently fluent to allow her to participate in all club activities shall be eligible to join the Association.
