Make Friends, Make Memories, Make a Difference

Welcome to Cape Town

New to Cape Town? Thinking about relocating? Already living here but looking for new interests?

Our members are an eclectic mix of ages & backgrounds, from all over the world, some here for a short professional posting, some have chosen to make Cape Town their second home, others were born & bred here.

The aim of the Club is to promote friendship among women of all nations and to give support to philanthropic projects.

We understand that relocating or adjusting to new circumstances can be a daunting prospect.

Let us help make that adjustment easier.

Make Memories!

Once a month, we all gather for our General Meeting where we can sign up for the events for that month. Grab a coffee and mingle, browse the bookstall then take a seat for the presentation by this month’s Guest Speaker.

From an Award-winning Female Neurologist to an Award-Winning Comedian, you never quite know what’s in store, but you always come out learning something, even if it’s only about yourself!

Make Friends!

Each area of the city has one or two Area Reps who will help you get to know your local IWC members through coffee mornings or similar events.

Make a Difference!

One of the IWC’s aims is “to give support to philanthropic projects”

We aim to provide support via many avenues.

Every month we nominate a cause that will benefit from our fundraising. We hold a monthly raffle and sell second-hand books & magazines. Depending on the needs of the particular charity, we will organise collections of requested items, & deliver the proceeds directly, providing hands-on volunteering where feasible.

From collections of toiletries for retirement homes, clothes for a women’s refuge, baby bundles for Newborns, supplies for a Soup Kitchen or plastic bottle tops to exchange for wheelchairs; you name it, we’ve done it!
