In april we started with the Connectors Programme. The programme consists of matching one newcomer to a ‘local’ resident for half a year. With a series of 6 meetings the ‘local’ connectors support the newcomers to build up a professional and personal network and to deal with the practicalities in building up a new life in The Netherlands. We hope that by this matching Refugee Company can provide a framework where meetings, skills building and sharing between individuals will flourish. More importantly, where the path to opportunities for work can be facilitated through the support of a local.
