Who We Are

The Hanoi International Women’s Club (HIWC) is a non-profit group whose membership is open to all expatriate women living in Vietnam. The objectives of the HIWC are to promote the development of social, charitable and cultural activities among its members, the Hanoi based expatriate community, and the people of Vietnam; and to provide a forum for expatriate women 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.

Upcoming Events

An important part of the Bazaar is the opportunity for Charities that the CAC have supported and other charity groups to participate by selling goods made by them. The two members who are organising this part of the Bazaar this year are Diana and Claudia. They are out an about visiting various charities in Hanoi and further afield. Last week they visited a charity unknown to us and a first time participant. I want to share a video of that organisation and say to you this is why the Bazaar is so important. Please take the time to look at it.
