Empowerment

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

Confucius

Empowerment has numerous aspects. At the Wereldhuis we want all aspects to succeed. Starting with personal support we offer, the Worldhouse also works to achieve the best postion possible for this group of undocumented migrants.

That includes information, education and skills-training and getting things done by co-operating together. As the Wereldhuis we work together to achieve the goals: Personal development, initiatives, encouragement, responsibility and organization. We want to increase the sense of well-being for each migrant that visits the Wereldhuis.

All the activities that the Wereldhuis offers builds up the self-confidence of the visitors of the Wereldhuis. We offer a platform for the development of individual (and group) skills. At our Worldhouse College you can follow languages courses (Dutch, English and Spanish) karate lessons, computer lessons. We offer cultural activities such as guitar lessons.

We offer discussion rounds and reflections on world problems in ‘Faces of the World’. ‘No paper work’ trains you to be more pro-active in work situations. We also offer other temporary learning programs, so check our website regularly. The courses are given in English, Spanish, French or Dutch.

Do you like to make music yourself? Then contact the ‘Worldhouse Fusion Band’ for more information.

So, if you want to be involved, join a network? Visit us and be informed. Several Self Organizations have their office in the Wereldhuis.

All the activities are for free and you can also participate as a volunteer, collaborating with us in activities that are interesting for you. Being empowered, you will  be effective in approaching opportunities for your own development and for others, by learning how to help people to be helped by themselves.
