AkiDwA’s first strategic priority is to represent the voices of migrant women and their families to the political and administrative system, the media and to the public.

AkiDwA plays a key role in helping migrant women to  address issues like Gender-Based Violence (GBV), Health and Integration.

AkiDwA advocates for a level playing field for  all migrant women living in Ireland in their private and public lives.

AkiDwA encourages Government to approach access to rights, services and economic opportunities from a gender perspective. Safety and protection issues are paramount,  particularly within State systems.
