ABOUT US

BIWA (BURSA INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION) is a registered non-profit, non-political and non-religious social organization that brings together international-minded women of all ages and cultures in Bursa.

MAIN GOALS

  • to provide a social network for international women and help them integrate easily in their new environment
  • to encourage communication and friendship between foreign and Turkish women in Bursa
  • to provide opportunities for personal development
  • to contribute to the development of Bursa

We meet to share experiences and give each other support in an informal way. We have regular social and cultural events and activities and are actively contributing to local charity projects.

BIWA MEMBERS ARE BOTH FOREIGN AND TURKISH WOMEN

BIWA members are women coming from many different countries and cultures who are living in Bursa. Among our foreign members, some are expatriates who are living in Bursa on a temporary basis, some have Turkish husbands and are here permanently, and some simply choose to live in Bursa. Our Turkish members have either lived abroad or speak a foreign language and are interested in cultural exchange and helping foreign women better adapt to life in Turkey.

What all of our female foreign and Turkish members have in common: all of us are volunteers and like to welcome new international-minded women to BIWA!

WE WISH TO

  • discover Bursa and Turkey as well
  • having activities in a friendly atmosphere
  • share tips about life in Bursa
  • share international cultural traditions
  • support other women and children in Bursa via charity
