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.
The pandemic hasn’t stopped us! We’ve continued to offer a monthly lecture, LIVE at the Marriott Hotel in The Hague or online.
The lectures are held from September to June, usually on the second Monday morning of each month. The program includes guest speakers and a variety of cultural presentations from different countries. Also, we’re still organizing excursions and various activities with all due safety measures, of course.
Our next main events in 2021 are:
Monday 11th October 2021 ‘Climate change from an international perspective” presented by The Climate Envoy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands H.E. Ambassador Jaime de Bourbon de Parme
Monday 8th November 2021 ‘ Leadership working solutions’ presented by Mrs.Pauline Kromkamp-Struik
Thursday 16th Red Christmas Charity Luncheon at the Restaurant Van der Valk – De Bijhorst in Wassenaar, where a Christmas raffle will be held in favor of the Children Cancer Center in Lebanon.
In line with the Dutch government’s Covid-19 guidelines for attending our events it’s required to bring your Corona QR-code or a proof of vaccination certificate or a negative corona test result.
