Gilda’s Centre for Women

A safe space to learn and connect

In the summer of 2015, the Centre lost a true friend, Gilda Baron. Gilda had been actively involved in the work of the Centre for many years and her generosity knew no limits. Her untimely passing was a great sadness to all who knew her – a light was extinguished. Before her death, she promised Mohammad Fahili that she would continue to support the Centre for many years into the future – and accepted our request to rename our programmes for women, “Gilda’s Centre for Women.”

Our programmes are aimed at women of all ages and religious denominations. We provide a range of educational opportunities which help build the women’s self-esteem and increase their chances of finding employment. Activities focus on camaraderie and support. For many women, the time they spend at the Centre is the highlight of their week.
