The International Women’s Club of Pristina (IWCPR) was founded in February 2004.
Our purpose is:
- To welcome expatriate women and offer help and encouragement to make living in Kosovo a rewarding experience
- To support cultural activities and to provide opportunities for improving appreciation of the life and culture of all countries, in particular, this area of the Balkans
- To foster a variety of interest groups to provide a network for women to share interests or gain new skills and knowledge. The language of communication is English, but our members speak a variety of languages.
Our core values are: Inclusion, helping members feel they belong, are respected and valued for who they are; Diversity, appreciating the unique differences of all members and their unique contributions to IWCPR’s purpose; mutual Support through our friendship and collaboration; Sharing our experiences, knowledge, skills with other members.
We organize activities such as a weekly coffee hour, craft club, French conversation, cultural events, book club, film appreciation club, knitting club, Spanish speaking club, board game club, luncheons, and hiking. We take organized trips to other parts of Kosovo about once per month. Some previous trips have been to Velika Hoca, Prizren, Stublla, Novo Brdo, Lipjan, Gracanica, and Gadjima caves.
