IWP, International Women in Portugal, is a social organisation for women of all ages and nationalities in the Lisbon – Cascais area. Whether you have newly arrived in Portugal or are a long time resident, being a member of IWP is a marvellous way to meet people from all over the world, to make new friends, and to enhance your life in this beautiful country.
IWP has an established reputation for offering a warm welcome to new members and for providing opportunities and activities that reflect the changing needs of women in Portugal.
Hi, my name is Jane and I’m originally from South Africa. My family and I moved here a couple of years ago. Before Portugal, we lived in Jordan in the Middle East. I’m a mum of two kids and I was a member of the IWP Moms and Tots group when people said that they would love a group for older children. I decided to volunteer to organize that group, which is the Kids and Families group. We meet every Sunday at 3pm in various locations such as parks, beaches, museums, and we organize fun activities for the whole family. I personally like the Kids and Families group because it pushes me to explore all the amazing places in the Lisbon / Cascais area, and it creates a sense of community for me and my family and for all the kids and families that participate. And I also like the fact that my children look forward to the weekend so that they can see their friends and discover new places. If you would like to participate in Kids and Families, login into the IWP website and at the top of the page, click on Activities, and then under Group Categories, scroll down and click on Mothers and Children, then click on “Kids Group” for more information.
