The story of the Azerbaijani Women’s Support Centre (AWSC) begins in 2005 when a group of dedicated women from across the country decided to support women and families in Canada and globally. After years of hard work, AWSC is Canada's only charity organization for Azerbaijani women. We are dedicated to equity, equality and empowerment for all women. We also work with women of other communities to achieve significant milestones for women. AWSC is committed to improving the status of women. We provide women and children with support, information, and options. We offer programs and services designed to empower women and children. We coordinate projects and work closely with our community members, partners and service providers, to ensure that women and families are organized, informed, and support each other.
