"THOUGHTS FOR WOMEN BY WOMEN"
The name AFKARECH literally translates to “your ideas” in the Arabic female pronoun in a Bahraini dialect to emphasis the origin. It was felt there was a gap for such a society in the community. Women wanted to feel supported in their professional/personal endeavours, celebrated, seek guidance to pursue education/employment, have a safe place to share their ideas and connect with like-minded women. Once the idea was created there was a snowball effect and it grew and evolved. Each potential member added a new layer. The main goal remains the same; to be a voice for women in Bahrain; to be a positive light; and to empower women to be what it is they want to be.
AFKARECH PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT
Afkarech is built on that foundation that "every woman is allowed to define success on her own terms". By setting up this network we hope to encourage young women in education, in the work place or simply someone that has an idea. Help women have confidence to achieve their dreams.
