We are based in the province of Zeeland, the most south-westerly part of the Netherlands. WIGZ is a pro-active and multi-cultural organisation that has something to suit all tastes and all ages. We offer you the opportunity to meet new people, and also get more out of your life here in Zeeland. Whether you are here permanently or only for a short time, WIGZ offers a wide range of social activities.


American Netherlands Club of Rotterdam (ANCOR)

The American Netherlands Club of Rotterdam (ANCOR) offers many activities for women. We are a club of 75 women from 23 different countries. The majority of our members have Dutch partners (love immigrants) and that tends to be common factor for most of us. It is not necessary to be American or Dutch but only the desire to connect and network with other women. Our club has something for everyone. Monthly activities: Book club in members' homes, day activities (outings or organized activities) and evening activities (social outings at various locations in Rotterdam). Annually: Thanksgiving dinner; Christmas High Tea; May Annual Luncheon and June Salad Potluck.


International Women’s Club of Rotterdam (Pickwick Club)

The International Women’s Club of Rotterdam (Pickwick Club) is a social meeting place for women of all ages and backgrounds with English as a common denominator. Many of our members are married to Dutchmen and like the opportunity to touch base with other English speakers. There are various club activities, which include a monthly meeting with a speaker or demonstration, a gardening and a literary club which meets at members' homes, cinema visits and outings to other events are also organized. Yearly events include the spring and Christmas lunches and an annual Bring and Buy sale.



myHaarlem was founded by Ward Meijer in 2002 to let people build or expand their network of friends in Haarlem. So he launched the myHaarlem website, where both expats and locals were welcome to join the group. From thereon, myHaarlem grew rapidly and over 500 people have signed on since then, enjoying myHaarlem events. With the majority of members being expat, the number of active members tends to fluctuate, and currently we have around 200 members. The board, as we self-importantly like to call ourselves, changed several times. At some point Ward decided that he wanted to spend more time with his family, leaving you with the myHaarlem team of today.


Irish Club Netherlands (ICN)

The Irish Club Netherlands (ICN) - Club Éireannachn a hÍsiltíre, De Ierse Vereniging Nederland - was founded in 1984 to provide a focal point for Irish people living in The Nederlands. With the growing number of Irish people settling here, the club plays a central role in providing cultural and social links with the Irish community in many parts of Europe. Its scope of activities include Irish language activities and lessons, Gaelic Sports, Irish Step, Set and Céilí Dancing, traditional Irish music and Irish culture. Along with its quarterly publication, 'Le Chéile', the club is organised both on a national basis and with Local Activity Groups (LAG).


InTouch English Speaking Mother & Toddler Group, Rotterdam

InTouch is an informal, friendly expatriate social group that aims to help English-speaking people and their families to make friends and settle into life in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. While many of our members are from the Expat community, we also welcome members who are married to Dutch nationals and are permanent residents in the Netherlands. We hold a wide variety of events to cater for the needs of all our members, including regular ladies' dinners, coffee mornings, movie nights, Culture Club (where we learn about each other's countries) and special interest workshops (cake decorating and jewellery making have been particularly big hits!). There's also couples' bbqs and themed parties, as well as events just for men every quarter. The little ones are also kept busy at InTouch with our very strong mother and toddler group, "Mums & Tots", meeting every week.


International Women's Club of Breda

The International Women's Club of Breda was founded in September of 1969. It was originally called the British and American Ladies Club. Now we have 50-60 members from about 17 different countries with an age range from 20’s to 80’s. We’re single, married, working or full- time mothers. We’re retired, have grandchildren or are devoted to our hobbies. The aim of the club from it's foundation to the present day is simply to provide a network of companionship and support. Many of us find ourselves living in the Netherlands as a result of either our own or our partner’s work commitments or because we have a relationship with a Dutch citizen. Becoming accustomed to a new culture, environment and language can be difficult so the club is open to all foreign women together with Dutch women who have recently returned from living abroad.


International Children and Parents Club, Gorinchem

The International Children and Parents Club is an organisation, designed to meet the needs of English speakers, their partners and children in the Gorinchem area. It provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences, and gives the children a chance to practice their English, all within a social environment. The two British women (English ladies.) behind the project, Louise and Rosemary, have both lived in Gorinchem for several years. Having young children themselves, they missed the various "pre-school" groups, which are so prevalent in the UK and other English speaking countries, and recognised the opportunity for such a Club to exist in Gorinchem. The Club meets on a fortnightly basis in Gorinchem, primarily for the children aged 0 to 10 years. However we also have an active social programme for the adults.


International Almere

International Almere is an English speaking organization connecting & building essential social networks for those that live and work in the Flevoland region. International Almere started as an informal group and became the registered association “Vereniging International Almere” with the chamber of commerce on March 1, 2010. International Almere was founded because we realized that there was a need for diverse activities and opportunities for the international community in and around Almere.
