EWA is a dynamic, ever-evolving organization that exists to benefit members by providing services to enhance their everyday lives in Japan. Set up under Commissary & Recreation affairs of the U.S. State Department, it is a cross between a small business and a not-for-profit organization.
The association exists with the oversight & approval of the Post Administration and is accountable to CR financially and operationally. As a small business, it is expected to make a profit; however, as a not-for-profit organization, all profits are used to benefit the membership. Your EWA aims to contribute greatly to the morale of the Embassy Community.
