CONNECTING HANDS


THE HISTORY

         Connecting Hands started in 2015 after a think tank organized by the Student Union of the University of Twente. Employees of the university decided to raise money after protests by local residents on the planned building of an AZC (refugee center) in Enschede. With the raised money, students could organize activities for refugees in a neighboring AZC.

THE PRESENT 

         In the present, Connecting Hands aims to create a platform for refugees, asylum seekers, students, and Dutch society.   The refugee center AZC Azelo has been closed and its residents moved to AZC Almelo, however, we still collaborate with them and also work together with refugees living in Enschede who are a part of M-Pact. By teaming up with these and other organizations in Enschede and neighboring cities, we will continue to host events that promote integration and help our participants to improve both social and hard skills.

OUR MISSION

         Our aim is to help out refugees and asylum seekers from all over the world to fit into their new life, integrate into their new social environment and to accomplish their goals. We believe in building a better society with equal opportunities.
