Welcome to the AIWCC! No matter why or for how long you’re here in Cologne, you have found a home in the AIWCC. Many of us are very far away from home and for some, this is our first exposure to a new and completely unfamiliar culture. The club is here to help and to make your adjustment to your new life easier.
Who are we? Our membership is approximately one-third American, one-third German and one-third everyone else! There are over 20 countries represented in the club. This diversity of our membership weaves the beautiful tapestry that is the AIWCC. Being part of an international community enriches us all in ways we may not have imagined and leads to lifelong friendships as we bond over our adopted new city and its customs.
What do we do? Our purpose is twofold. We provide an instant social network - a place to make friends and find much needed support, and, above all, a place to speak English. The club also gives each of us the opportunity to be part of something much bigger than our own personal community. The AIWCC has a long and illustrious history of philanthropy on both local and international levels. We are a FAWCO member club and very proud to be part of an international community of over 8,000 members, working together to impact and improve the lives of women and children worldwide.
How can you get involved? Join an activity! We offer numerous monthly activities; there is truly something for everyone. Additionally, we celebrate all major U.S. holidays and Cologne Karneval.
So, whether you simply want to speak English, are looking to make friends, are seeking help and support in adjusting to your new surroundings, are exploring opportunities for business networking, or you just want to make a difference in the world through charitable fundraising, we look forward to your joining us. Welcome to Cologne!
