It is of primary importance for the IWA to organise occasions for gatherings, both for women who have just arrived in Hong Kong and who are pleased to share ideas within our ‘small Italian community’, and for members who wish to meet regularly and take part in the various activities.

We also welcome all foreign ladies who wish to speak our language and share our experiences.

In this regard, we always try to propose new events, and we welcome any suggestions and proposals from members, so that what we do may turn even more dynamic and interesting.


Thanks to the financial contribution we receive during our meetings and activities, we can support numerous charities every year. At this link the ones we supported from May 2020 to April 2021.

Here below, our sponsorships for the previous years:

We are also very pleased to inform you that IWA has been nominated, in 2019 and for the eight consecutive year, a ‘Caring Organisation’, for its incredible charity involvement in Hong Kong society.

Thanks to the members Cristina Cevolotto and Lucia Maruzzelli who gave birth to Virginia *, the new reading group, every month we meet and discuss the reading of texts by Italian and foreign authors. Open, animated and entertaining debates with interesting reflections full of ideas that creates a real exchange of opinions and points of view.

* It takes its name from Virginia Woolf, a non-conformist writer, free thinker, personally involved in the battles on the issues of women’s rights in England in the early twentieth century.
