Belfast's Asian women celebrate five years with new social and recreational hub-1

BAWA was formed on 21st January 2019 as a centre of inspiration and empowerment to make a difference in people's lives.

January is always a special month for Ana Chandran, who has been firmly focused on helping other newcomers to Belfast since making the city her home while also giving back to the local community. Ana is the founder and chair of the Belfast Asian Women's Academy (BAWA), a group of around 200 women from across Asia who have made the city their home. The married mum-of-one migrated from Malaysia to England in 2001 before moving to Belfast eight years later.
