Who We Are

The Hanoi International Women’s Club (HIWC) is a non-profit group whose membership is open to all expatriates living in Hanoi, Vietnam. Whether you are living in Hanoi, moving to Hanoi or thinking about moving to Hanoi, the HIWC has information and events for every expatriate.

The objectives of the HIWC are to promote the development of social, charitable and cultural activities among its members, the Hanoi expatriate community, and the people of Vietnam; and to provide a forum for expatriates to identify and discuss issues of common interest regarding their personal and professional lives in Vietnam. Raising funds has always been at the forefront of all HIWC activities and the Annual Charity Bazaar has become a signature event of the Club, generating most of our charitable funds. These funds are used to finance our Community Aid Projects, which improve the lives of disadvantaged women and children, and small communities in Hanoi.

We know that moving to Hanoi and then living in Hanoi can be both rewarding and challenging, and by providing a supportive network for all Hanoi expats, we know that you will learn to love Hanoi, just like we do.

Upcoming Events

We hold regular events for meeting up with Hanoi expat newcomers and regulars alike at exciting venues. Also there are usually lucky prize draws held at these events so join the HIWC to be in with a chance to win. Find out more by viewing our list of upcoming events and activities.

Yesterday I presented Anh Pham with cash to the value of $975 US. This was the money raised at the Fun Run held at Ciputra. Anh is a remarkable woman and runs two very successful charity programs at the KHospital. I know she will put the money to very good use helping the ladies receiving treatment. Mr Lam from Quick Events added to the fundraising by donating 1million vnd and we really appreciate his gesture.
Another great event led by Penny and her team - thank you all and well done. Thank you also Nada who took on the raffle sellers role and she did a great job. Who could say no to Nada - not me.
