The American Women's Association of Indonesia is an organization established and maintained especially for you, our Member. AWA has been in existence in Indonesia for nearly 60 years.
First established in the mid-1950s, our membership remains strong in numbers. AWA has grown into a vibrant organization that connects women of Jakarta and nearby areas with a supportive network of fellow expatriates, cultural integration, charitable works and fun activities.
AWA's purpose is to conduct activities of interest to citizens of the United States and others residing in Indonesia, to foster feelings of fellowship among its members, to further interest in Indonesian cultural activities, and to give financial assistance to social welfare and socioeconomic projects in Indonesia.
Our Social Welfare Committee supports a variety of community projects in Jakarta. Funds are raised from various fund-raising activities along with the fall and spring shopping bazaars. In addition, funds are raised from the sale of our many publications - books that are invaluable to anyone new to the city. These resources are full of insightful information to help you get to know Jakarta.
AWA is a wonderful resource for you as you settle into your new Jakarta home. Members enjoy casual coffee morning meetups, more formal coffee morning programs, and a wide variety of fun group activities and special events. The AWA Center acts as a meeting place for friends to gather. You are warmly invited to drop in for a friendly cup of coffee. Please consider the AWA Center your home away from home!
