About Us

The lnternational Women’s Association of Johor Bahru (lWA) is a non-profit organization established in May 1999 to support expatriates living in Johor Bahru.

The IWA works to promote interaction among women of international backgrounds living in Johor Bahru and its surrounding areas. Together our members enjoy a variety of activities and events designed to make life in Johor Bahru interesting and enjoyable.

Giving back to the community is at the heart of the lWA. Fund raising activities are organized to aid local charities by providing items ranging from basic essentials for charitable homes and educational material for schools to special equipment required for healthcare.

The work within the IWA is voluntary and driven entirely by our members. The executive board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. They are supported by committee members who work together to plan and initiate various activities for IWA members. They are as follows: Charity coordinator, Membership coordinator, Social coordinator and Publication coordinator.
