News and Updates 

August 2015


The month of August for AWAG was busy and exciting. We had Ms. Bala Thakrar visiting from our partner charity in London, The Asian Foundation for Philanthropy.

We also hosted a three-day holistic training session for all the AWAG staff members at our head-office in Bhudarpura. This was a great opportunity for the staff to spend time with one another, bond, and work on developing personal skills.

We held our first pop-up shop in Panchvati, where local Amdavadis supported our income generation branch, EK AWAG, by purchasing our range of products.

AWAG was also paid a visit by Oxfam India to share ideas of counselling practices, particularly models of placing female counsellors in police stations.

AWAG joint secretary, Ms. Nalini Trivedi, featured on GSTV Girnar Television Channel's 'Hello Sakhi' to discuss issues of women's empowerment in Gujarat.
AWAG hosted a three-day training session for all staff. This involved holistic training on team-work, leadership and role-related skills, followed by fun and games led by Tasneem. 
AWAG's first pop-up shop took place on Monday 31st August in Panchvati and was hosted by Ms. Nalini Trivedi. We were supported by the local community who came to buy many of our EK AWAG products
