Foon Ying and Welcome to the AWA. The American Women's Association of Hong Kong (AWA) is a not-for-profit organization of international women from over 30 nations. Our mission is to support Hong Kong charities and schools through community service and monetary grants, while offering educational, recreational and social activities to our members, connecting them with the community of Hong Kong.
Our diverse and dynamic organization has much to offer.
ACTIVITIES & CLUBS - Drop in and meet our members at CHAT (Come Have A Talk) every Thursday morning at Pier 8/The Nesbitt Centre from 10 am, or let your hair down with a glass of wine every Tuesday evening, Happy Hour at OWL (Out With the Ladies) at Oolaa on Bridges Street. Join your local neighborhood coffee or a book club. Come hike with us, or walk through one of Hong Kong’s historic districts for a lesson in it’s rich culture. Find out more about the AWA and all that we do by checking our website, AWAre magazine or simply stopping by the office anytime, where you can be sure to receive a free cup of coffee/tea and a warm smile.

WOMEN AT WORK - If you work, are trying to find work or perhaps considering setting up your own business, our WOW (Women on the Way Up) group is for you. Contact the coordinators on [email protected] for details on networking events, meeting dates, speaker topics and general schedule. Or click here for more information.
VOLUNTEERING - If you are interested in volunteering in the local community, we can help you there too. Our English conversation, reading at local primary schools, and student mentoring programs are hugely rewarding (Contact [email protected]k). Or perhaps you would like to read for the blind, be a part of a birthday party for sick children, entertain visiting U.S. service personnel or bake cookies for the Red Cross. (Contact [email protected] for community opportunities.) Or would you be interested in volunteering for the AWA for the Charity Bazaar or our 60th Anniversary gala or a number of other events, small and large, that could use both your time and your talent? (Contact [email protected])
Make sure you have checked the box on your profile page and joined the AWAForum. Our member only forum is an invaluable tool for members to reach out and ask any question about life in Hong Kong and in return receive helpful and practical information and recommendations from other members.
If you aren’t already a member, join us! Foon Ying! We look forward to seeing you at upcoming events and activities.
