Raise Women's Awareness Network
RWAN is an initiative led by Lama Jaghjougha, a Syrian refugee living in Belgium, and was launched in 2018. The initiative emerges from a strong believe in the right to education for all women and in helping refugee and immigrant women to become involved in societies through finding work and internships.
RWAN’s mission is to help the refugee and immigrant women to have education access and get a professional opportunity in order to become productive individuals in Belgian society.
We assist them to get prepared for the new challenges by building on their past experiences and providing guidance about the new tools needed for a brighter future.
During 2019, we celebrated the training of more than 100 women so far, In the presence of representatives from five universities and ten organizations in Belgium.
