Associations and Community Groups

Community is so important when we are abroad. Finding people that share things in common is not always easy, and it always makes a huge difference in the quality of life. I’ve realized that in order to connect an effort must be made but it’s so worth it. Here you will find the associations we belong to and the Church activities take part of.


American Women’s Association

Iberoamerican Association (Formerly the Spanish Speaking Women Association)


International English Service

  1. Hi Ana,

    Thanks for sharing these! We just moved here 2 weeks ago! I joined AWA and now also attending IES through reading your blog 🙂 I’ve also started a blog and hope you don’t mind me mentioning yours on my post.


    • Hi Cass,
      Welcome to the Big Durian! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions! AWA is awesome and IES feels like home. Hope to meet you soon! 🙂 Take care

  2. Ana, if possible I would love to link some of your pages on Jakarta activities with the AWA website. Please message me directly if that is possible. Best,
