Expatriates are quite an enigmatic group of people, sharing the common feelings that come with living away from home makes them quite open to friendships and easy to get along with. The easiest way to make friends in a new place is to either have a social hobby or partake in a social activity. If you are new to Azerbaijan, there are a few expat clubs that you can join where you meet a few new people.
HASH Harriers group
Often reffered to as a “Drinking Club with a Running Problem” The Hash House Harriers are a world wide misorganisation with Hash’s in just about every major city. Go to the search page to find a hash near you. The Baku Hash House Harriers were founded in 1996. We are a family oriented hash and welcome runners and walkers of all ages and abilitys. Runs will normally last around 1 hour with a shorter route for walkers. The Hash normally takes place in Baku, moreover – especially in summertime – we mismanage Bus-Runs and Away-Weekends
International Women’s Club of Baku
The International Women’s Club of Baku was founded in 1994 with the objectives of fostering friendship and mutual understanding among women from all over the world and supporting charitable work in Azerbaijan.
We are a charitable and a social organization with a diverse and growing membership base of over 100 women of varying nationalities, backgrounds, ages and interests.
Community Shield Azerbaijan
Community Shield Azerbaijan (Baku) (CSA for short) is a charitable organisation established in 2002 by a small group of volunteers to help the Leprosarium at Umbaki. Due to the temporary stay in Azerbaijan of many volunteers, it is not possible to recognise all of them or to give out contact numbers as they change constantly. Our email address therefore is the best means of getting in touch with us.
The Baku Caledonian Society
The Baku Caledonian Society is here to assist in raising of funds to benefit the charities we support here in Azeraijan, to promote scottish culture and encourage relations between Scotland and Azerbaijan.
