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.
