About us

The American Women's Club of Antwerp is a social, cultural and philanthropic club of 
English speaking women from all over the world.

We are here to offer friendship, support and social activities whether you plan to
stay for a short time or a lifetime.

The American Women’s club, Antwerp, (AWCA) is celebrating its 90th year in 2019. The club was founded in 1929 as a social club by American men and their wives working in Antwerp following WWI. The American Women’s club of Antwerp is now a group of over 120 women from all over the world. 

Our motto: May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous. 

Purpose: Our purpose is to create a center of social, cultural, and philanthropic activities for women in the greater Antwerp area. 

First, some history about our club and how we got here: The American Women’s club is under the umbrella of a larger organization called the Federation of American Women’s clubs overseas (FAWCO). It is a recognized NGO with a special consultative status to the Economic and Social council of the United Nations. FAWCO links over 75 independent American and international volunteer organizations for citizens who live abroad. That’s covering over 38 countries and 15,000 women. We are inspiring women working towards common goals of peace, multicultural understanding, and international goodwill; supporting women and girls in education; environmental awareness, health and human rights, and defending the rights of Americans living overseas.




Welcome

Hi. I'm Kanika, President of the AWCA. 

We are more than just a 'club.' We are a community of inspiring women across all ages and nationalities, and we all are or have been expats. 

The AWCA played a big part in helping me feel at home in Antwerp. This wonderful group of 'gal pals' shared their insights, advice, and support, making all the difference when doubting myself and missing my family and friends back in the States. 

 New members are always welcome. Take a look at our upcoming events and get in touch if you'd like to come along as our guest.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Activities


Each month the AWCA organises a variety of events and activities in which members can participate.


A members monthly meeting is hosted on the second Thursday of the month with the aim of being informative and fun. On the third Thursday of the month a tour is organised. These tours can be to visit an exhibition, venue or cultural event in Antwerp or just as equally in neighbouring locations in France, Germany and the Netherlands. The club also organises special events during the year.


Members of the club also organise activities. These at present include:


Book Club  |   Bridge Classes  | International Cooking  | Food Tours   Cinema Sisters |   Yoga Classes  |  Coffee Catch-up every Wednesday in Antwerp.


As new and fun activities arise these too are shared with the membership and participation encouraged. Click on the button below to see what's coming up.
