Who We Are

Welcome to Washington International Club, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to provide a welcome for women coming to the Washington area from countries other than the United States and to encourage friendship between these women and the women of the United States.

Friendship and Understanding

The purpose of our Club is to promote friendship through understanding and understanding through friendship among women of all nations.

Our programs give our membership an opportunity to share mutual interests, learn from each other, share our cultures with each other, and establish deep lasting friendships.

Fascinating Programs


Our members enjoy trips to artists’ studios, exhibitions, and workshops and take trips in the DC area to destinations off the beaten track throughout the Club season from September through June.


Exploring Different Cultures

Our programs include visits to embassies where we learn about the cultures of many countries from around the world, as well as programs where members themselves share their own travel experiences and broaden our horizons. 

International Cuisine

Cooking demonstrations, speciality dishes, and recipes shared by members give us a rare pleasure of tasting different national cuisines.



Members exercise their many skills and talents as they plan fun, creative, and educational programs and volunteer by organizing and hosting events.
