We are a social group with a social purpose.

Our Story

Before the BWN became the BWN, it was a small, informal gathering of expat women meeting in someone’s living room for coffee and friendly conversation. Although we’ve upsized our meeting space and our mission since then, we haven’t downsized the friendly.

Our Social Purpose - Supporting Local Charities

2016 - 2018 Charities
Every two years we select local organizations that we support through fundraising and – whenever possible – through volunteering. For May 2016 to May 2018, we are actively fundraising for Mujeres Pa’Lante and Fundació Concepció Juvanteny
