Calgary Immigrant Women's Association truly believes in volunteerism and the potential of all women. Volunteers are a precious resource to our agency and allow us to promote and enhance our services. The mission of the Volunteer Program is to empower immigrant women through volunteering and recruiting exceptional volunteers to support CIWA's programs and services. Why do you volunteer for CIWA?

Volunteer of the Month

Every year, CIWA volunteers tirelessly provide thousands of hours of support for immigrant women and their families in Calgary. Without their support and contribution, CIWA would not be able to run the day to day activities of the organization. CIWA recognizes the hard work and outstanding efforts that our volunteers contribute every day to our programs and services through our Volunteer of the Month Initiative.  

We would like to congratulate Rhizlane El Rhaftou for being the Volunteer of the Month!
