IWA: The International Women's Association of Bucharest

There are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet.
IWA is a volunteer-run, non-profit association, bringing people together since 1978.


The International Women's Association of Bucharest is an independent, voluntary, charitable, non-profit and non-political organization. The purpose of IWA is to promote friendship amongst women of all nationalities living in Romania, and to introduce its foreign members to the life and culture of its country. In addition, IWA raises funds to support such charitable projects and organizations as IWA determines to be sound and worthy recipients of IWA funding.

IWA is a proud member of Open Door -
the association of International Women's groups around the world.


We're so glad you are visiting our website. The members of IWA are a diverse and dynamic group of women from around the world. We have a wide range of activities, ranging from serious to silly. We have fun in our clubs, lunches and outings. We enrich our time in Bucharest by learning more about Romania. We share a desire to impact less fortunate communities through our Charity grants, funded by a remarkable multicultural Charity Christmas Bazaar in December. 

We look forward to welcoming you at one of our monthly Newcomer Meet Up or Coffee Mornings. There is truly something for everyone here so don't be a stranger! We look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes, 
Gladys, Strella and all the women of IWA
