Welcome to the American Women’s Association of Qatar!

Welcome to the American Women’s Association of Qatar (AWAQ)! Founded in 1979, the AWAQ is a vibrant and active group for women living in Doha.   We provide a variety of ongoing activities and events, and partner with the wider Qatar community through our volunteer programs. We welcome new members year-round, so if you’re recent arrival to Doha, we’d love to help you adapt to your new life here and introduce you to new friends and worthwhile experiences. Beyond our broader mission statement, we’re dedicated to our global community, and invite you to join us today!
