About Us

The American Women’s Association in Qatar was founded in 1979.

AWA in Qatar consists of a group of women who meet regularly to share experiences, make new acquaintances, provide a resource for those new to Qatar and learn more about the culture of our host country, Qatar. Throughout the year, AWA hosts a number of activities to accomplish these goals.

AWAQ hosts monthly meetings with guest speakers covering a wide range of interesting and relevant topics. A full calendar of events and activities, including hosted coffee mornings, sightseeing field trips, and cultural events offer something for just about everyone.

And, we’re not just about having fun – AWAQ also have a volunteer program with Hamad Children’s Hospital.  For several years, we have been involved with Hamad Hospital’s Cancer department.

AWAQ’s goal is to have active, contributing members of this wonderful international community in Doha, and we invite you to join us.  Explore our offerings, join our group, and discover all the friendship and fun that AWAQ and Doha have to offer.
