Our activities evolve over time depending on the interests of our members, so if you don't see something you like, please let us know.

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