Our club is a great way to connect with other international women in and around Breda. Some members have just arrived in the Netherlands and are in the process of adjusting to Dutch culture. Other international members are long time residents of the Netherlands. We also have Dutch expat members that have returned from abroad and wish to maintain an international connection. As a club we offer our members an informal way to meet other international people from all age groups, to speak a common language, make new friends and acquaintances, and actively participate in the social aspect of the IWC Breda.
