The African Women’s Alliance of Waterloo Region is a nonprofit community based organization founded in 1995. Our mission is to promote African culture and heritage to members of the African community and the general populace in Waterloo Region through educational and social activities. We also seek to provide a strong support system for African women and their families living in the Waterloo Region as they seek to combat the prevailing structural barriers in their journey. African Women’s Alliance of Waterloo Region supports new families to settle in this area by providing them with information about existing services & programs.

Our Objectives


The African Women’s Alliance of Waterloo Region is governed by a volunteer board of directors. Each member of the board also contributes to subcommittees for specific ongoing projects. All of our programs are run by volunteers. We hold an annual event for volunteer appreciation.
