DEWA Project was established in 2010 by a group of women committed to promoting equal access to rights and opportunities for refugee women in South Yorkshire.

Our maiden project was the publication of our now sold-out book “Different Cultures, One World: Women’s Voices from South Yorkshire”. The book amplified the voices of women of various backgrounds, including refugees & asylum seekers

DEWA Project:

*Supports women forced to flee their countries to rebuild their lives in their new country

*Helps women and girls to reach their full potential through skills and capacity building

*Influences policy through advocacy that is informed by research

*Offers training and workshops to organisations working with women and girls

*Works collaboratively with organisations of similar values and ethos to synergise efforts of achieving women’s advancement
