The Association of British Women in Malaysia (ABWM) was established in 1975.   We are a non-profit making organisation and run many events for our members, who are often expatriate women accompanying husbands on assignment to Malaysia.

We also have members who are married to Malaysian citizens or ,having chosen to retire to Malaysia, are here on the "Malaysia My Second Home" programme. While mainly based in and around Kuala Lumpur, we have several members elsewhere in Malaysia who keep in touch via our monthly magazine.

Monthly coffee mornings and lunches provide an opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old ones. We also organise trips and activities for the benefit of our members, and sponsor and work in a number of local charities.  The ABWM provides an opportunity for women new to the country to make friends and get involved with the local community.

The association has many members from a variety of backgrounds which makes for a very lively and friendly group.  We'd be delighted to meet you so please don't hesitate to get in touch either once you're in Malaysia or when you're planning your move.  Lynette Rock, our Newcomers Co-ordinator, will happily answer any questions you have prior to your relocation, then once here please come along to one of our Coffee mornings.

You can also find the ABWM on Facebook if you search for 'British Women'. Here you will find activities and events, and a discussion board. Please join the group to keep up to date with information. 

This website is packed full of information, events and photographs for members.  It also has details of our Corporate sponsorship programme and Advertising rates.  

Once a member, you will receive the monthly magazine, weekly e-newsletters and members rates for events and activities.

Please bear in mind that all Committee members are volunteers and may not answer their email or phone immediately, but leave a message and they will get back to you. 

We can assure you that there is a lot going on in KL and you won’t be alone - or bored
