A Home away from Home



Founded in 1928, the American Club for International Women, Mumbai (formerly American Women's Club of Bombay) provides a warm and welcoming community through the promotion of social, cultural, educational and philanthropic activities for expatriate women living in Mumbai.

ACIW Mumbai is a non-profit, social club of women from over 30 countries.  Founded in 1928, it is the oldest expatriate club in Mumbai and is run by an Executive Board of volunteers elected from the general membership. The Board organizes coffee mornings, activities and events to help members settle into their new homes, giving them an opportunity to meet other like-minded women, and to support the activities of worthy charities. Meetings are held in various parts of the city and are fun and interesting.

​The Club has close ties with the US Consulate (the wife of the US Consul General is Honorary President) and the American School of Bombay.  ACIW Mumbai is a member of FAWCO (The Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas) and was selected to host the FAWCO Biennial Conference in 2017.

You may be a seasoned expatriate or a “newbie” but we know that every country is different and has its own joys and challenges.  Let us help you build lasting and rewarding friendships in your adopted city.
