Raisah Ahmed – Chair

I initially had the opportunity to engage with Amina MWRC through the Employability Project. Being in a room with such a diverse group of women with a range of life experiences has always left me feeling inspired and grateful that such a place exists that brings these women together. The work that Amina does is vital in the world we’re living in today, and I love being of support to the amazing team that run the organisation, helping it continue to work and grow.

Aziza is also one of our founding members! Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s.

Robina Khan  – Secretary

As soon as I joined Amina MWRC I became actively involved in the capacity building project which immediately gave me opportunities to work in partnership with other organisations and engage in outreach work. I understand the key concepts of establishing good connections with other organisations and networking in order to extend opportun-ities for our own organisation.

I think that the work of Amina MWRC is extremely important. The organisation does a lot for the women who access our services and I like to assist where I can.
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using

‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors
now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
