IWC Amsterdam supports and is part of Open Door Worldwide - an international network of women's associations. Today there are sixty-five International Women’s Associations in thirty-three countries which "open their doors to each other."
Open Door aspires to facilitate and promote inter-club contact and communication between International Women's Associations which are non-political, non-religious, non-commercial, and where membership is open to all nationalities. The Open Door network is administered through the means of a Directory of member Associations with Club and Contact details of Presidents and International Coordinators.
No doubt you will enjoy making new contacts here in the IWC Amsterdam with international friends who can help you to establish a life in a new country whose culture, language and institutions are different and unfamiliar. If you, like many others, find yourself having to move on to yet another country, or even another part of the Netherlands, the Open Door network can help you get in contact with an IWC near you.
