Chairman’s Message

AIWF the first 15 Years

This year The Arab International Women’s Forum commemorates its 15th anniversary. 

The Arab International Women's Forum (AIWF) was established in London in February 2001 as a development organisation with the clear aim of supporting and enhancing the role of women in the social and economic development of the Middle East region. 

In just 15 years, AIWF has become a powerful advocate for the rights and opportunities of women and youth in the region, recognised as a key actor in the international development community for its successful achievement of groundbreaking, timely, and results-driven initiatives that have brought civil society, the corporate sector, governments, media and academia together and have produced informed, action-driven recommendations and action that has direct benefit for women and youth across the Arab world.
