Woman2Woman Diaspora Action Group is a non-profit organisation founded in 2012 in Malmö to inspire, encourage and offer support to women from all backgrounds to achieve their goals, dreams and to make a real change. The organisation, which has a bottom-up approach, was started by a group of Somali women who wanted change in their communities. They identified an emerging need for a platform for diaspora women to discuss current problems diaspora women face in society, an action group that activity raises awareness about diaspora women as well as giving women a more prominent voice within minority communities.
Woman2Woman motivates each woman according to individual needs and aims to develop leadership skills. Our activities and services include book clubs, IT training, sport activities, dance classes, study support groups and personal consultation and assistance. Woman2Woman also organises events, for example cultural nights.
Woman2Woman Diaspora Action Group is funded by membership fees and receives small funds for events and activities from the municipality and private foundations.
