About Us

Until June of 2009, we were a small unofficial group of fewer than 20 women. We would get together now and then for a drink and a laugh. However, Kerri Dann from Australia (centre), had been an expat in Dubai for many years and knew that we could be more and that there were more of "us" out there. So she took action. In June 2009 she officially formed the Fribourg Expat Women's Group and today we have over 275 members!

Life as an expat can be unpredictable and Kerri returned to Australia in 2010. Margaret Braun and Deirdre Coghlan took over and the group continues to evolve.

The F.E.W. Group has opened so many doors for so many women. New friendships have been forged and more are just waiting to happen. We always have a good time when we get together - why don't you come along next time? 

We are always happy to see new faces!
