In the night of 17th /18th June, the ‘night of the refugee’ takes place (nacht van de vluchteling). Thousands of participants walk a 40 km tour between big cities to create awareness and raise money for emergency aid and displaced refugees. Do you want to join the walk or donate? Have a look at their website!
A new motivated group of students will continue to work on Engineers for Refugees! Kasper, Bente, Patrick, Tobias and Jeanine are busy behind the scenes to arrange an integral program similar to last year’s. First up was this new website. Stay tuned to our website and social media to get updates and get involved!
To get an impression of what we have done last year, please read this article (dutch) about engineers for refugees in the TU Delta. The article explains our integral approach and shows a few examples of successful buddy couples.
In September 2016, we had one of our first plus-modules. Together with the E4R participants we had a nice Syrian lunch at Jeanine’s place. Plus-modules are various kinds of activities that offer an inspiring environment to learn about the Dutch culture, traditions and academic- and business environment. This results in a faster-than-normal integration for ambitious intelligent refugees.
