AWI is an international humanitarian organization that is active in emergency, recovery and development fields particularly in the sectors of food security, nutrition, WASH, peace building and human rights and protection. Activities are realized through community engagement with involvement of the people from the initial stage of the project to closure and post monitoring. To be successful, AWI works with grassroots communities in Africa, regional as well as federal levels of governments and with the unwavering support of European communities.

In order to have a reflection of those people in the organization, AWI employs people from the grassroots level as well as people from Europe and other parts of East Africa. Even though AWI is originally set up to assist people in East Africa, it does not exclude other countries. The senior team of Awi has over 30 years of working experience in East Africa, with most of it in relation to Somalia.
