Supporting refugees towards social and economic independence
Calling people to their own strength and showing them what they are capable of instead of what they are not.
Refugee Company links the talents of people with a refugee background to opportunities and job possibilities to better our society in an immensely unique way.
The best way to integrate is through work.
Refugee Company raises funds to offer learn-work programmes to people with refugee backgrounds. These programmes last between six months and three years and are run by our social enterprises A Beautiful Mess and the Mondmaskerfabriek.
Participants start working in one of our ‘safe spaces’. As a result, they become active, gain experience and build a network. Language lessons, basic civic integration, personal development and well-being are all part of the programmes.
Helping refugees to take an important step towards social and economic independence by creating jobs, either paid or voluntarily. By participating, people become stronger and happier.
Inspiring society to be more open towards people with refugee backgrounds, show appreciation and help them in their search for a meaningful life in the Netherlands.
