Since founding in 1958, AIWC has given regularly donations to various charities and organizations. Here are some projects the Club has supported.
Baby Quilt Project
To mark our 50th anniversary in 2008, AIWC members got together to design, sew and donate over 80 baby quilts, each one a unique creation, to every premature baby born in the Hôpital Universitaire de Genève, (HUG) from June 2008 - 2009.
Camarada: Through our Grand Autumn Bazaar, the AIWC helped the Camarada Foundation - a center for migrant women - by donating a percentage of the proceeds from this event.
