Amal Women’s Association (Amal) is a Dublin based Muslim women’s organisation. Established in 2013 we provide a range of supports and services to vulnerable Muslim women and their families.
Amal women Association is a Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) with registration number: 591330
The organisation first emerged in response to the needs of Muslim women experiencing gender based violence who were accessing classes and other services in the Dublin Mosque.
A number of women volunteering with the Islamic Foundation of Ireland recognized the need to create a separate entity to respond to complex issues that women faced. The organisation that emerged, Amal is a women-led, civil society organisation. We exist to respond to the needs to women of all faiths and none but with a particular focus on women who come from a Muslim background.
Amal provides a culturally appropriate service for women. We support women to access mainstream services like health, mental health, family support and immigration support services.
We support mainstream services to understand and work with women and families from Muslim backgrounds.
We first set up in 2013 our service and has expanded. You can read about the many areas of our work elsewhere on the website.
