PIWC is a social network providing educational opportunities for needy children in Phuket.

A non-profit organization, Phuket International Women’s Club (PIWC) was set up in 1989 and has been growing ever since. It promotes friendship among women of all nationalities- including offering welcome support and information to newcomers – and a wide range of activities and social events for members.

PIWC also sponsors education. Since 1990 more than 700 scholarships have been offered to girls and boys at primary, secondary and third level. Currently 202 students – from kindergarten to university – are receiving financial assistance from the club.

Students’ lives have been profoundly improved by our scholarships and we are very proud of our success stories. Many have been the first member of their family to graduate from high school.
