Welcome to Douala!

Yes! An international women’s group exists in Douala. It has been known for a long time as the Douala Coffee Morning Group. But if you’re new in Douala, you wouldn’t think of searching for Douala Coffee Morning on the internet, unless somebody has mentioned it to you. DCM has a FaceBook page that you can visit but still, clueless about the name will not lead you to the group.

Thus after hearing the same frustrated feedback that people can’t find “international women’s group in Douala” or “English-speaking group in Douala” in the internet, the new working committee of the DCM group decided to rename DCM into the Douala  Women’s International  Group (and to create this blogsite!). It will continue what the DCM has started: a social network or a help group for those who find themselves landing in Douala not knowing where to start.

As you begin your adventure in Douala, finding someone or better yet, a group of people who would be more than happy to help you get started, will make your new life a little bit easier. The Douala Women’s International  Group (DWIG) will not have all the answers to your questions. What we offer are: a starter kit, coffee and tea at least once a month, some company, and potential friendship.

If you’re interested, contact us at douala_women@yahoo.com or leave a comment on this site and we’ll respond to you gladly.
