Blossom of Hope 2024

You can help fight breast cancer

A lump, a suspicion, a mammogram, an MRI, surgery, chemotherapy, remission we all hope. One in ten women will face a diagnosis of breast cancer in her lifetime, and our Blossom of Hope campaign aims to help make that journey as smooth as possible by raising awareness about early diagnosis, by facilitating screening for women and by raising funds that go to purchase medical supplies, all of which improve chances of a positive outcome. This is the 16th consecutive year that the International Women’s Association of Vilnius is supporting women and doctors on the scary journey of a breast cancer diagnosis - many thanks to all who contributed last year by making a cash donation, donating an auction prize or attending our gala charity concert . More information about this year event on the link below.

Socialising & Charitable Giving

IWAV's mission is socialising and charity giving. We extend the hand of friendship to assist foreign and international women living in Vilnius to promote inter-cultural exchange through an established network.

Abstract Room

IWAV works toward sustainable empowerment through a variety of activities designed to contribute to the personal growth of its members, as well as to the vulnerable and disadvantaged groups located within the community we call home.

Home: What We Do


In 1992, against the backdrop of a newly independent Lithuania, a small group of expatriate women living in Vilnius took the initiative to form a women's group. Alongside a rapidly expanding international community, group membership increased, culminating in 1998 with its official registration as the International Women's Association of Vilnius (IWAV).

In 2003, our famous International Christmas Charity Bazaar (ICCB) was born.
This was followed by our breast cancer charity event Blossom of Hope in 2009.
