Connection. Collaboration. Culture. Community.

BAAWMAR’s goal is to serve and connect Bahamians, Bahamian Americans and Friends of The Bahamas living, studying and working in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia and beyond.

We aim to promote educational, cultural, scientific, spiritual and artistic contributions of Bahamians in the Washington, DC & Mid-Atlantic Region and in The Bahamas and collaborations with American institutions at various levels.

We aim to bring together Bahamians and persons interested in Bahamian culture in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area, to create friendships, national unity, and mutual assistance to charitable, educational, and cultural institutions in need of assistance in the Washington, DC & Mid-Atlantic Region and in The Bahamas.
