Coffee with an Expat – Creates Community for Mothers of Children with Autism

Coffee with an Expat creates community for mums with children of determination.

A Dubai-based support group has been established to help mums with children of determination to connect with each other and to take some time out to focus on their own wellbeing. The dedicated community has been created as a sub-group of the 5000-strong network, Coffee with an Expat (CWAE), which provides a space for women to meet-up, build connections, network, engage in meaningful conversations and share their experiences of expat life.

Formed by CWAE Founder, Navine Eldesouki, and Lebanese expat, Farah Sabbah, the People of Determination (P.O.D.) Moms group combines a program of educational workshops, inspirational guest speakers, and informal coffee mornings, to enable members and guests to learn, develop themselves, share their experiences, and find support among likeminded women.

Navine explained, “Caring for people of determination came up during one of our discussion sessions at CWAE and it seemed that, while there is a lot of support for the kids, there are few spaces where mums can meet-up and take some time out. Farah’s initiative to set up a specific group aligned with our mission at CWAE, and the response among members has shown the need for this dedicated space.”
