Who we are...
The International Women's Association Hannover (IWAH) is a group for women with international origins, backgrounds or experiences who live in the Hannover area and would like to share their experiences with each other and promote intercultural understanding.
IWAH was founded in 1992 in order to help newcomers in Hannover during the initial adjustment period.
At the same time, IWAH offers its members information and insider know-how about our city and life in Germany. We strive to create a friendly environment in which women feel comfortable and at home. We provide opportunities for our members to explore and discover Hannover and the German way of life. With our currently more than 20 interest groups we offer a variety of opportunities for our members to for example learn new languages, get active, be creative, explore Hannover's cultural life and socialize. Please check out our event calendar to see what is currently going on at IWAH.
Presently, more than 52 different nationalities are represented in IWAH. Women of all ages from many different walks of life make up our membership. We use English as our common language, but other languages (including German) are also spoken.
