The Awin–Pa or Awin–Pare languages are a small family of the Trans–New Guinea languages (TNG) in the classification of Malcolm Ross. Stephen Wurm (1975) added them to an expanded Central and South New Guinea branch of TNG, a position reversed by Ross (2005).

The languages are just two, Aekyowm (Awin) and Pare (Pa), and clearly related to each other.
