Welcome to IWC The Hague

Welcome from the President

Founded in October 1978, the International Women’s Contact The Hague is a social and cultural club with the aim of fostering contact and friendship between ladies coming from abroad and internationally-minded Dutch Ladies.

Today we have about 300 members from some 60 countries and our main language is English.

We are entirely run by volunteers and have non-profit status with the Dutch government. Our enthusiastic volunteers organize exclusive events, inspiring lectures, interesting excursions and many other activities.

Once a month we meet at the Leonardo Royal Hotel Promenade in The Hague, where we can enjoy a cup of coffee together and attend a presentation held by a guest speaker, each time different and always about the most interesting topics. Also, we’re constantly organizing excursions and various activities.

If you like to join us, please email our membership officer: membership@iwcthehague.nl

Looking forward to meeting you,

Lany Pradjarahardja, IWC President

Our History

In October 1978,  Hanneke van Eekelen, the late Saramata Voorhoeve and the late Henriette de Lange came together with their experiences in an international environment and formed a committee of women of all ages to meet and welcome newcomers to The Hague.

IWC The Hague has been, from its birth to the present day, a very lively and harmonious Club, with various activities and interesting Monthly Meetings.

IWC honors the countless members who have dedicated so much of their time serving with energy, dedication and enthusiasm on Executive Boards, the many Committees organizing bazaars, food fairs, charity events and memorable jubilee celebrations. Truly a wonderful legacy for all the IWC members.
