From Women

For Women

IWI is a non-profit social organisation made up of over 500 international women from more than 30 different countries.

For 40 year we have been  strengthening friendships across borders.


Don't forget to mark your calendars now for another fabulous IWI event coming up in March! 

Come and celebrate International Women’s Day by supporting the organizations that mean so much to us, organised jointly between IWI and IPWIN.

Our Star Spangled Spring Party will be an elegant and entertaining evening to be held at Celebra restaurant in Kuruçeşme, and will feature cocktails, a sumptuous finger food buffet, lottery, auctions and fun fund-raising five minute segments, followed by plenty of dancing late into the night. Men are also included (in fact most welcomed) in the invitation. 

5th of March 2016, 7:00 pm
