About AWA


The American Women’s Association (Bahrain) is a non-profit organization founded to further relations among all women residing in Bahrain and to promote Bahraini and International friendship.

We are a dynamic group of women from all over the world that functions as a social, cultural and charity organization. We currently have over 200 members of more than 40 countries. While helpful in settling in new expat women in Bahrain, we have a very active membership that participates in different interest groups, as well as a band of volunteers who help us make our charitable contributions to more than 35 non-profit organizations and individuals in Bahrain each year.
