The Palestinian American Women's Association was founded in 1984 by a group of professional women in Southern California and has 150 members. PAWA has a passion for community service and working specifically with women and youth.
All programs and workshops provided by PAWA are lead by experts in the field and focus on topics such as, education, child abuse, cancer support and more. Visit our Workshops & Projects pages for more detail.
PAWA assists not only Arab communities in the United States but also families in Palestine and Lebanon. We are proud of the help we've been able to provide and would like to thank you all for supporting our efforts.
