Clubs and Societies in Istanbul

International Women of Istanbul (IWI)

www.iwi-tr.org

This is an active and vibrant group for expat women – anyone can join as long as they or their spouse has a foreign passport. It is an excellent social forum for newcomers to meet other women, and it also serves as a support group and point of reference. Its programmes range from cultural activities, to city sightseeing to crafts and cooking. It also organises a book club, a bridge group and an art club.

The IWI is also associated with several charities and offers volunteer opportunities for women. Its main fundraising event of the year is the Christmas Bazaar.
