We are helping people who struggle with homelessness, unemployment and addictions.
Among other activities, our goal is to help people reconnect to the job market.

Nowadays work agencies in The Netherlands demand from candidates to have smartphones  so they can make use of certain apps. In addition, phones are often the only way for homeless and vulnerable people to connect with various organizations, social workers and/or family members, who can help with managing formal matters. Smartphones have become necessary for those who want to receive help.

This is why we are asking for your help! Often, people have old phones laying around the house, which are not in use. We are collecting those old phones regardless of the damage, scratches etc., as long as they work! Our plan is to redistribute these phones to the homeless and vulnerable people who cannot afford them otherwise.

Do you have one? We will be happy to receive you in our offices in Utrecht, Eindhoven or The Hague during working hours. If you would like to meet somewhere else, that might also be possible, but we will have to check with our team and volunteers in order to coordinate!
