The Ilocana Women’s Organzation in Kuwait (IWOK) are a group of Kabayans who tirelessly share their time, effort, generosity and knowledge to help uplift the plight of distressed Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), mostly women at the shelter waiting for documentation and finally, repatriation to the Philippines.

IWOK understands the need for these women to gain back their self confidence and trust to other people. Training  in good grooming, personal hygiene, different beauty culture skills like hair cutting and styling, hair dyeing, hair treatment, manicure, pedicure and others are taught for free.
