What we do?

The Worldhouse is a center of information, counseling, education and culture for undocumented people and based in Amsterdam. We are here to help people with few rights; searching for new perspectives.

The Wereldhuis is a place for you to get involved!

Check ‘What can you do’ and be informed of how to collaborate in the Wereldhuis.

What can you do?

Being part of the Wereldhuis big group you will develop your own empowerment and abilities.

The Wereldhuis is the place where undocumented migrants are not dependent on others for a while. Here you can become active.

At the Wereldhuis most activities are offered by volunteers who are undocumented themselves. A strong social network makes you stronger and voluntary service can broaden your perspectives.

Come to the Wereldhuis and be part of the team!

Need help?

Everyone who is in an emergency situation or needs to be heard can contact our pastors and social workers for a personal interview. We have no shelter facilities. But we can provide information about existing rights and possibly mediate financial support by various emergency funds. We also can help you with legal advice. And for medical advice, Dokters van Wereld are present every Friday morning. Call 06-228 21 472 or mail us for details info@wereldhuis.org
