85 & Counting Beneficiaries

The American Women’s Club of The Hague has an 85 year history of philanthropy, whereby we have touched and improved lives in our community of The Hague and beyond. The tradition of giving back has been the primary focus of our organization since its inception and continues to this day. Since 2002 alone, our charity galas have donated 1.5 million Euros to our beneficiaries. Our 85 & Counting Anniversary Benefit will support the following organizations:

Fawco Feed the Girls   AWC The Hague is a founding member of The Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas (FAWCO), a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with special consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council. FAWCO is a network of independent American and international volunteer organizations. In March 2014, FAWCO selected Free The Girls as their Target Project: Human Rights for Women. Free the Girls, a non-profit organization that provides job opportunities for survivors of sex trafficking in Mozambique, Uganda and El Salvador. The group donates gently used bras to rescued women as starting inventory for their own business selling the bras. Visit their Websites at fawco.org and freethegirls.org

The Lighthouse Special Education is the only school of its kind in the Netherlands serving members of the international community whose children have special educational needs. Working in English and seeking advice and support from parents and educational institutions, Lighthouse Special Education offers a new chance for children with complex behavioral and/or developmental problems to be part of the community.


“Let Them Laugh” is dedicated to the most vulnerable children in the Netherlands, those living below the poverty line. Laat ze Maar Lachen treats children between the ages of four and twelve to a day of fun, whether it’s a visit to a zoo or museum, to an amusement park, or to a hands-on crafts show. The organization is run entirely by volunteers and their families and is a registered Dutch ANBI. www.laatzemaarlachen.com
