“With over 30 member clubs, FIWAL has now grown into an organisation where women from every country, faith & culture can meet & learn from each other, and become real friends.”
Jocelyn Jones 2018, FIWAL Co-Founder
To learn what makes FIWAL so unique and why we care so greatly about building friendships and joining together with women of so many nationalities, cultures and religions, follow the headings on this site beginning with the About FIWAL page.
Established in 1986, FIWAL acts as an umbrella organisation for international women’s associations based in and around London. With 33 member clubs, many nationalities and an aggregate membership of nearly 3,500 women, FIWAL’s aim is to broaden friendship, understanding and communication amongst international women’s associations in London.
FIWAL promotes the activities of its member clubs so that individuals of these clubs can attend events that will enable them to experience cultures other than their own. Besides the social value of these events, funds are often raised to assist with charitable causes relating to their homeland or their local communities here in the UK.
As well, FIWAL organizes a conference every other year to enable delegates to hear distinguished speakers addressing current affairs and societal issues, oftentimes pertaining to women. Through these opportunities, the mission of FIWAL has thrived.
FIWAL’s first-ever @HOME with FIWAL event was held on 5th May 2020 via Zoom, featuring cookery writer and teacher Katie Caldesi. If you would like to view the video of Katie’s presentation and live demonstration, or to download the recipe page, it is available on our Past Events page.
