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.

Our Mission Statement: American Women’s Association of Qatar is an organization which functions to promote friendship and fellowship among female members of all nations. Our mission is to foster and encourage social, educational, cultural, and philanthropic activities within the community. We achieve this by providing and developing alliances with local businesses, schools, and other organizations in Qatar.

And, we’re not just about having fun – AWAQ is involved in various Community Service activities as well. We work with the local hospitals, wounded U.S. military, USA Girl Scouts of Qatar and more.

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.
