Graduate Women International Netherlands




President: Terry Oudraad



CIR: Saskia Voortman


Graduate Women International Netherlands wants to work together with her members and like minded persons and/or NGOs to improve the position of women and girls worldwide. GWI-NL focuses on education in the broadest sense of the word. Education is an effective tool because it promotes self-management and empowerment of women and girls, which helps them to become independent, self-confident and powerful in life and to respect themselves and each other.
