Canadian International WomenÃ¢â‚¬Ëœs Society
The CIWS is a philanthropic society, with the concomitant goal of providing social contact
for Canadian women as well as many other women from all over the world. It is a fully registered non-profit organization operating in the greater SÃƒÂ£o Paulo region. Efforts are dedicated to raising money for various local charitable institutions caring for impoverished children and adults. CIWS also provides a social forum wherein members of diverse cultural backgrounds can share a common goal of helping others. Founded in 1962 by the wife of the Canadian Consul General in SÃƒÂ£o Paulo, CIWS has grown to a membership of 100 women of many different nationalities. Funds are raised at monthly luncheon meetings, and at two annual charity events. The first of these events is a gala evening of dinner and dance, "Pub Night"; the second is a fabulous Fashion Show. At the monthly luncheons, members and guests pay a small fee, modest compared to the good food and camaraderie offered, frequently with a guest speaker on hand too.
