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 2022 are:
Monday 14th February 2022
