IWA Georgia was initiated in 1996 by a group of expatriate and Georgian women living in Tbilisi. Since then, IWA Georgia has supported women, children and elderly people who are at risk due to poverty, poor health and disabilities.
In spring 2017 IWA obtained the official charity status which confers to the Organization a stronger position as an offically recognized, serious and well managed organization.
Up to now the Organization continues to function as
a) a safety net for expats women who arrive in Tbilisi, help them to settle down, find their interests, mix with Georgian women and learn about the culture and richness of their hosting country and
b) as a charity NGO which supports grass root organizations with focus on women and vulnerable groups of Georgian society.
