The focus of AWWA activities is to facilitate healthy interaction and to ensure that army wives benefit from each others experiences and development of their overall personality to deal with their problems. The welfare being undertaken is aimed at promoting cultural harmony and creating the atmosphere for families to develop their talents, ameliorate their problems and generate interest in healthy and happy ways of living. 
 
The ideals of Asha, Vishwas and Aastha have upheld the highest ethos of sharing and caring with multifarious activities spearheaded by Mrs Sayona Philip, Regional President AWWA with a vision to ensure better quality of life for the families of the Western Command.
