"You are the best community (Ummah) raised up for (the benefit of) humanity; enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong and believing in God…"
At Taqwa Habesha Muslim Women's Global Organization, we’re committed to empowering women and youth globally, and to investing our resources and expertise to serve underprivileged communities. Since 2020, we’ve been supporting the community through the launch of various projects.
TAQWA HABESHA MUSLIM WOMEN'S GLOBAL ORGANIZATION
During the 2020 Quarantine, a group of women across the DC Metro area decided to reach out to other Habesha women all across America to connect and form a virtual support group during those trying times. From this proposal, a weekly zoom teleconference and strong Habesha sisterhood came to life. THMWGO immediately grew international, connecting sisters from around the globe to discuss issues concerning faith, health, family, youth and women empowerment, and other community concerns. As we grew, so did our ideas and purposes.
MISSIONS & GOALS
THMWGO is a non-profit NGO that recognizes the importance of changing the world. We seek to do this by creating a liaison among Habesha Muslim Women from all walks of life, to encourage and strengthen each other to facilitate the notion that dreams and aspirations are achievable. By working together to cultivate empowerment, build teams, drive accountabilities, and push boundaries, we can assist Habesha Muslim Women and their families throughout the globe in eliminating barriers to long-term economic self-sufficiency.
