International Women's Club Eindhoven


Our meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of each month — except July and August. However, the dates are subject to change.


The meetings begin informally with a chat and coffee or tea. Around 11h, the official meeting begins with announcements by the President followed by a guest speaker.


Unless announced otherwise, meetings take place at Thermae Son, Thermaelaan 2 in Son en Breugel - from 10 to 12 hrs. Thermae Son's telephone number is 049 - 9476383.


Mothers of young children can arrange for child care by contacting Thermae Son on the Monday preceding the meeting.



How to get to Thermae Son (in Son en Breugel):


By public transport: Bus 156 or 157 —from Eindhoven central Station—will take you to the town of Son en Breugel in about 20 minutes.

Ask the driver to stop nearest to Thermae Son, at busstop 'Gentiaanlaan'.


By car: there is ample free car parking available at Thermae Son's own car park. (Sorry, their website is in Dutch only).

*Extraordinary General Meeting


26th of October: EGM and Klok en Peel Museum of Asten


We welcomed a speaker of the Klok en Peel Museum —featuring church clocks and bells— in nearby Asten in our October meeting.

First we held a short EGM (Exceptional General Meeting) in which members voted for approval of the auditors' report and the use of part of the savings account towards our 50th anniversary celebrations. Members came forward sharing and discussing more ideas about the event(s).


The talk about some famous church and tower bells that put Asten on the map, gave us some surprising historic insights. And, what better follow-up could there be than a visit to this great museum! It will be on Saturday 24th of March with EEB. More details on the home page and in the February newsletter.

13th of April: Ronald McDonald House


Ms Wendy van Aken of the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Veldhoven explained how her organisation helps parents of sick children (pictured right).

Parents can be with their sick children at the RMH which offers a homely, pleasant and comforting atmosphere away from the hospital where the child is treated.


“The mission of RMHC is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families." 

Their vision is “A world where all children have access to medical care and their families are supported and actively involved in their children’s care."

16th of February:

NEOS, the prevention of domestic violence.
