What is SILA-IWCL?

Who We Are?

SILA-IWCL stands for SILA International Women’s Club Ljubljana . The word “sila” also means “strength” in the Slovene language. SILA-IWCL is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-profit organisation, formed in 1993 and run voluntarily by its members. The club offers its members numerous opportunities to participate in diverse and interesting activities to foster deeper mutual understanding among ourselves and to expand our knowledge of Slovenia and the rest of the world.

Currently SILA-IWCL has nearly 170 members of all ages from over 44 countries. Some are living in Slovenia temporarily, while others have been residents for many years, including many Slovene ladies. Our members have highly diverse backgrounds, including business, HR, politics, PR or spouses of diplomatic representatives.

Our Mission

To welcome and assist newcomers to Slovenia, share information and experience, foster goodwill and friendship among our members, further members’ knowledge and understanding of Slovenia by organising cultural, sports, educational and social activities and raise funds for the benefit of selected charity projects.

When we meet

Our monthly General Meeting, which takes place at Hotel Lev every second Tuesday of the month, provides an opportunity to learn about cultural events in Slovenia, sign up for current activities happening within SILA-IWCL or socialise with friends and new members.
