NAAWA had launched a Micro-finance Project to support women needing seed money to start their business. However, upon receiving feedback from our members, we decided to incorporate that project into the hereunder mentioned endeavor. This way we would be providing an all-encompassing support.
NAAWA is pleased to announce to our members and friends the launching of “Women for Women Professional Network.” This program aims to create a women’s business directory, as well as a venue for women seeking professional networking.
We are glad to team up with Empowered Women International (EWI) to provide entrepreneurship training, mentoring, market access and support services to help potential women monetize their creative or cultural assets, artistic abilities, knowledge and skills, and become change-makers within their families and communities. Our Guest Speaker Alexandra Boycheck is a Program Manager at EWI-Maryland Division. She is looking forward to joining us and presenting “Grow My Business – GMB.” Alexandra also hopes to answer your questions about how to start a business and how to make it grow.
Civic Engagement Workshop
Members of NAAWA and volunteers participated to spread NAAWA's message and encourage new friends and network with other groups. As NAAWA is growing and spreading, we encourage partnering with other organizations to spread our message!
This workshop gave our voice to not only the arab-american community but to friends and supporters of the arab-american community.
