DEWA Project:

Development and Empowerment for Women's Advancement

Different Cultures, One World. Women's Voice from South Yorkshire

DEWA Project was established in 2010 by a group of women committed to promoting equal access to rights and opportunities for refugee women in South Yorkshire.

Our maiden project was the publication of our now sold-out book “Different Cultures, One World: Women’s Voices from South Yorkshire”. The book amplified the voices of women of various backgrounds, including refugees & asylum seekers

  • Helps women and girls to reach their full potential through skills and capacity building


  • Influences policy through advocacy that is informed by research
