WHY CHOOSE US
Our activities change over time, depending on the interests of our members. If members have a special interest they’d like to pursue, we ask them to please let us know and we will help them start a group.
These occur weekly, monthly or even yearly.
For example Book Club can be a small group of 5 people, Painting Classes can have 20.
Monthly coffees are special. We introduce the most amazing speakers, offer unique experiences and bring together as many of our members from 47 countries as possible.
Knowledgeable tour guides tell us information and take us to places we would not normally have access to.

Our Happy Members
And what they have to say!
I am so happy I joined IWA! The activities here are always in a welcoming environment where I can socialize and bond with women from all nationalities. It’s been really good and safe to meet with great women who share similar ex-pat journeys like myself.
We arrived in Bucharest in 2016. At my first newcomers coffee I met a lot of nice, funny, active, open women from all over the world. Needless to say that I joined IWA immediately.
I’ve been on a lot of great trips, visits to museums and places you’d not usually have access to, went on amazing tours, visited galleries, enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners, coffee mornings and beautiful events. I met so many interesting people, made a lot of new friends and heard the most amazing stories. IWA is truly inspiring.
Working as a professional freelance photographer, I’ve also had the great pleasure of teaching photography to the lovely IWA ladies with a camera.
I moved from Greece in September 2014. My first meeting with IWA was at the Christmas Bazaar of the same year where I helped at the Greek table. Since then, I have been a member of IWA. I am a member of the charity committee and I am a part of a wonderful team of ladies from all countries! Through IWA I have explored Romania, I have learned its traditions, its culture, and its life! I invite all the expat ladies to join our team!
Believe me, you won’t regret it!!
IWA is an association where one could meet pleasant ladies from all ages from all over the globe. Attend interesting events, happenings and get to know a lot about this interesting, mystical, historical and welcoming country-Romania!
I joined IWA in 2018 for the Charity. I loved the compassion, empathy and sympathy shown by those on the committee, who were helping local Romanians less fortunate than ourselves.
I quickly found there was a whole other world to IWA as well. The amazing trips and visits that showed me the culture and traditions of my host country. The unique collaborations and the new friendships that have lasted for many years. IWA is a very special organisation worth joining. You’ll love it, I know I do!
It’s my pleasure to be a part of a group that has so many members from different countries of the world. These members get together to discover Romania, support charity and encourage each other, which is a kind of necessity, especially when you are far away from home.
IWA provides me with great opportunities to meet and to become friends with amazing, bright and talented ladies who do their best to truly transform society and to build a better world.
Usually I enjoy almost all IWA activities, nevertheless I’m trying to use this great opportunity to better understand foreign countries, to embrace the various cultures IWA’s members represent as well as to present my country.
I am looking forward to meeting up with old and new friends to explore together things that make us happy!
