The global non-profit organization& network for Swedish and Swedish speaking women who are or have been resident abroad, SWEA, had their monthly coffee morning at the TCC Vivo City on 28 August. It was the first morning coffee after the summer break.
SWEA has approximately 7500 women members in 70 local areas in 33 countries on five continents and is thereby the largest nonprofit Swedish organization outside Sweden, with the purpose of promoting the Swedish language, culture and tradition.
The monthly event has an open invitation and anyone can attend with no pre-registration are required. Old and new Swedes in Singapore get together over a cup of coffee, socializing, chatting and exchanging ideas and information, at the same time as new connections and friendships are made.
“We were approximately 27 ladies at this morning’s event. There were many great reunions between old friends and many new connections were made,” says Maggan Kullberg Stampe from SWEA.
Swedish speaking women who recently moved to Singapore, but are not yet members of SWEA, are also welcome to join in the coffee morning to get more information about the association and hopefully become members.
