We, the women of International Women Association Modena (IWAM) are truly excited to kick off our new campaign “Women for Women, Growing Together”. The campaign aims to raise awareness and funds for the work of the Association for the Integration of Women (AIW), an association whose principles are close to the hearts of IWAM members.
AIW is a non-profit association founded in April 2020 with the mission to provide resources for women to establish roots and flourish. AIW believes that migrant women in our communities are assets and as IWA Modena we couldn’t agree more. The particular focus of the AIW is the economic integration of migrant women living in Modena and is doing that through programmes that build migrant women’s Opportunity, Capacity, and Motivation, giving them the platform they need to show their potential.
More specifically the campaign will support the launch of their new project, a one-of-a-kind, food-based social project, “ROOTS''. ROOTS will be a social restaurant in the heart of Modena with a two-fold objective: offering holistic training to 16 migrant women each year, and at the same time, creating a platform to showcase their skills and food culture, creating a more inclusive Modena through the power of food.
Every woman has her own story, different departure points, unique but also common challenges, but what we all have in common is that we are all women who want to call Modena home, who work hard to become who we truly want to be. In that spirit, we are truly looking forward to support AIW’s women make their own roots!
Join us in this campaign, to support migrant women in Modena make their own roots and give Modena a more inclusive future.
The campaign will include many events in which you can participate, please follow the news on IWA Modena web site for more information and spread the word with family and friends!
