Who We Are

‘WISHWAS’ is a dynamic New York City based not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to empower low-income immigrant women who maybe in disadvantaged situations or survivors of domestic violence, financial control, emotional abuse or may be simply seeking friendship and bonding. The cultural barriers for a new immigrant can be a daunting and overwhelming experience.

WISHWAS was created to guide them and give them vocational skills and mentoring that they could productively use as they take root in this country. We train women in various skills, which can help them seek employment. Courses such as conversational English, nutrition, health and hygiene are part of our holistic approach to empowering women today for a brighter future tomorrow.
