In a big and international city, such as Berlin, there’s a lack of space for self identified womento talk about their issues and questions. Normally, the first place they look for help is inside online forums. But unfortunately in those spaces they get harassed by creeps and trolls.
IWB provides a safe space where women can talk about their lives and ask for any kind of help - from dating, German courses to doctors and bureaucracy issues in Berlin.
IWB also provides online and offline spaces, where members can meet and lift each other up, so they don’t feel alone in Berlin.
We help international women to navigate their lives better in Berlin. From dealing with German bureaucracy, to connecting to new people and making new friends. Online and offline.
Most members experienced trolls and aggressive language in other groups. That’s not acceptable in our group and the members really appreciate that.
The feeling of having a space only for women where women help each other is highly valued among the members.
All posts made by members have helpful answers from other members.

Education & Information:
When you move to a new country, you get lost in all the new laws, bureaucracy and even cultural aspects of your new home. IWB shares constantly tips and facts about what’s going on in Germany and. In Berlin. We also host workshops about different topics, to help our members.
Connecting & Networking:
Most people who join the IWB group want to meet new people, because they feel lonely in Berlin. That’s why we’ve been organising meet-ups every month where the members can connect with each other and be introduced to other Iwbies.
Sharing Stories & Amplifying Voices:
The feeling of having a space only for women where women help each other is highly valued among the members. We are using our group but mainly our Instagram (+6.2k followers - we started this account in March 2021) to share those stories.
Safe Space & Resources:
Our community helps each other in the group’s feed, but we also share anonymous posts, when some members feel a bit ashamed or uncomfortable to publish some posts under their own name. We also share helpful resources such as lists or recommended doctors, how to make free STI tests, mental health support, etc.
