– Seek the prosperity of the city, because if it prospers, you too will prosper –
How can we help people who fled to here? Refugees who don’t know the language yet and maybe only have contact with each other?
Our dream at the start from Vlucht Voorwaarts was to do something for them. But in doing so we found that it’s not just about helping refugees with status to learn our language and culture, but that they can help us as wel. Help in understanding their culture, helping with community-spirit and hospitality which comes natural to them. Above al helping each other to live together in meaningful ways. Dreaming of our children playing together in the streets of Assen.
In a world in which our street doesn’t look like we knew it anymore, in which we stand beside people in the supermarket who look different we believe that this changing world can be an enrichment for everybody. By reaching our hand out to each other and learn from each other. That is what we do at Vlucht Voorwaarts.
