Raise Women's Awareness Network
RWAN initiative started in 2018 under the umbrella of the European Association for Viewers Interests (EAVI) with the support of the European Student Union (ESU) by the Together, Moving Forward (TMF) program. RWAN was officially registered as a non-profit organization in Belgium in 2021.
RWAN’s mission is to empower women by enhancing their awareness of their rights and of the resources available to them through education, ICT training and access to the labour market.
We envision a world where women can access equal opportunities in education, work, culture, and art.
Inspired by our passion for social responsibility and guided by our core values—integrity, trust, transparency, collaboration, and courage—we assist women to prepare for the new challenges by building on their past experiences and by providing guidance about the new tools needed for a brighter future. In order to achieve this goal, we help, support, encourage and empower all women to be informed and to utilize the resources available to them.
RWAN is a member of the Advisory Council for the Equality between Women and Men of the City of Brussels represented by Lama JAGHJOUGHA as RWAN founder.
