As President of the American Women’s Association of Indonesia allow me to enthusiastically welcome you to our website, and perhaps to the Jakarta community.
Whether you are considering a brief visit or a long-term relocation, or if you are already an expat in Jakarta, we look forward to sharing the many ways by which AWA can enrich your experience.
The AWA extends a warm welcome to all international women who are far from home. We remain firmly anchored to both our social and service-oriented roots and look at this outreach as a means by which diversity becomes community. We celebrate a fun and stimulating array of opportunities for members, and this year will build on those with newly designed day-trips, activities and monthly speakers. We offer an exclusive and indispensible selection of in-house publications designed to help newcomers and veterans feel comfortable with the language, the culture and the retail wonder of Jakarta.
Above all else we relish the bonds of friendship, acceptance, tolerance and respect that the AWA inspires between members and with our Indonesian neighbors.
Please enjoy navigating our website and when you are in town join us on Monday mornings to share a cup of coffee and a casual chat at the AWA Center. We look forward to meeting you!
AWA President 2016-2017
