After the speeches ‘Dostluk  Korosu’ (Friendship Chorus), working under the leadership of the Conversation Groups Chairperson Meral Arıkan gave a mini concert singing Turkish songs.

The Friendship Chorus was founded when foreign members of the Association of the Conversation Groups expressed their wishes to learn Turkish. They then started by finding themselves a good instructor, Hande Lüleci who taught them Turkish classical and folk music. The chorus with such enthusiasm and showed such interest in Turkish culture that when they were looking for a name it was easy and they named the chorus “Friendship” in total agreement. The chorus consists of British, Belgian, Venezuelan, Austrian, Bosnian, American, Canadian, Italian, Chinese members and the Turkish conversation committee Chairperson Meral Arıkan.

Turkish-American and International Women’s Cultural and Charitable Society was founded in January 1950 to increase the mutual sharing between Turkish and American ladies in cultural, social, and educational areas. Within the years many deep, long lasting friendships have been made. As a result of the rising demand, the word “International” has been added to the association’s name in May 2006 to include lady members from several countries. Their carefully chosen activities allow both to collect funds to the foundations they help and the opportunity to meet new people and see different places. 

TAIWCCS has several committees:

“Scholarship Committee” is founded to give monetary help to successful and needy female college students and the committee collects donations from individuals and foundations as well as through activities.

Bookmobile” brings books to elementary schools in-need around Ankara for two years, distributes school supplies and second-hand clothes and provides physical help to those schools. Also they invite the visited schools for theatre plays, performances and museum outings at least twice a year. It holds several activities to buy books to the library and to collect monetary funds for the schools’ needs.

”Conversation Groups” meet every week or every other week depending on the group’s desire. Each group has a foreign leader and the aim is to bring ladies together who want to improve their English. There are also groups for those who want to learn Turkish.

“Environment Committee” arranges activities to improve physical, social, cultural and humanitarian environment.

“Activity Committee” carries out one of the major programs of TAIWCCS. Most of the activities planned throughout the year are carried by this committee. Majority of the profit is gathered from this committee’s activities besides the profit from membership fees.

TAIWCSS’ membership is open to everyone. Activities start in September and end in June.
