British Arabs Supporting Integration, Recognition & Awareness

Basira is an Arabic word meaning ‘vision combining wisdom, reason and intellect’ and Basira's vision is for a humane future where equality, security and coexistence are at its heart.

Basira carries the voice of voiceless women to the world and campaigns tirelessly for their full rights. We believe that without equality and justice for women, true democracy and international security cannot be achieved, as they are the foundations of a peaceful and safe society.


We are the first NGO giving a voice to British Arabs to uphold the universality of women’s rights.

We aim to create positive connections with Arab women in the United Kingdom (UK) and the MENA region, emphasis that women’s rights can only be secured and protected by a true and honest democratic framework..

We stand firmly against any form of violations against women's rights.
