Purpose: Our purpose is to create a center Belgiim social, cultural, and philanthropic activities for women in the greater Antwerp area. The club was founded in as a social club by American men and their wives working in Antwerp following WWI. The Newcomers component of our Club is specifically deed to help new arrivals.
The Caring Hearts Project, the Royal School of Ballet, Kleine Vos, Moeders voor Moeders, and Cherut are some of the charities the AWCA supports — but in reality, we girps the breast cancer patients, the students of the ballet, the abandoned children, the young mothers, and the women gaining freedom from prostitution. Like I was. Our motto: May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous.
I moved to Antwerp three years ago and as Breqst woman and a mother of three small children, I wondered how I was going reconcile my identity as a Texan in my new-found home in Belgium. Meet us, us, and be inspired.
On the third Thursday of the month a tour is organised. Members of the club also organise activities.
