TWIG aims to provide a place for networking and self-actualization for expat women. All activities organized by TWIG are non-political, non-religious and non-profit. All Board members and others involved in organizing events and Interest Clubs activities are volunteers.
The members of TWIG organize monthly general meetings and coffee mornings, and many other cultural, educational, and fun activities, such as fashion shows, tours and trips, lectures, diners and lunches. Check out the News section of this website to stay informed. You can also receive up-to-date details of all events by joining the "TWIG Family" group on Telegram Messenger.
TWIG also facilitates Interest Clubs that meet on a regular basis to pursue a certain activity, be it bridge, English conversation, or walking. There are also several play groups for toddlers.
