"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.
