The Dreamcatchers Foundation believes it is important that women with a refugee background in the Netherlands feel at home here and build a warm, sustainable network. That’s why, together with a network of volunteers, we organise “dream days” for women with a refugee background. The main activity of this day responds to a personal wish of the “dream woman”. This can be a fun day out, or focused on practical skills or the future.
Based on the ‘pay-it-forward’ principle, that same woman can, in a new team of volunteers, organise a dream day for someone else after their own dream day. This way, she joins a warm collective that likes to get together and do something nice for others. This way, we help expand someone’s network and help them get – and stay – in touch with people in the Netherlands of all sorts of backgrounds!
