Arbeit

The project takes place in the refugee centre in Emmen which is a location for families with children. The children you will be working with are between 4 and 12 years. These children participate in a school program, but during the months of July and August, there is the summer holiday break. The volunteers organise activities for and with the children. This type of work calls for creative people who can make up all sorts of games from scratch to play with the children: music, sports, arts, language sessions, creativity, etc. Therefore the content of this project is up to you and the other participants. The games are scheduled throughout the week.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will stay at a campsite. You will need to bring your own tent, sleeping bag and matrass. There are cooking facilities in a cooking tent and the group will cook for themselves. The centre will provide bikes for every volunteer to ride between the campsite and the Refugee Centre (including bike ride lessons). Volunteers will bring a packed lunch to the worksite.

Lage und Freizeit

Of course there will be sufficient free time. Together with your camp leaders you will discuss the recreational program. Emmen is an attractive city with lots of activities in the summertime. You can visit places nearby and explore the surroundings. The area is declared a UNESCO-Geopark by the United Nations. Emmen is very well accessible by train and bus. Biggest attraction is the new theme park Wildlands Adventure Zoo (opened in 2016). Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Connecting with the Sustainable Development Goals and means to foster peace.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The location of the project is the Refugee Centre Emmen. Emmen is a city of about 60.000 inhabitants in the province of Drenthe in the northern part of the Netherlands. This refugee centre (in Dutch: ‘AZC Emmen’) has a capacity for about 400 refugees. This particular place is a location for families with under age children whose application for asylum has been denied by the Dutch government. These families will in time return to their homeland.

Our partner is the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (in Dutch: COA). The COA provides accommodation during the asylum procedure and prepares asylum seekers for staying in the Netherlands, returning to their country of origin or transmigration. At the moment COA manages about 100 centres in the Netherlands. COA is an independent administrative body funded by the Dutch Ministry of Justice.

The COA works together with a partner named ‘De Vrolijkheid’: the National Foundation for the Promotion of Happiness. The Happiness is a multicultural, not-for-profit network of artists, play writers, actors, musicians and volunteers who invest in children and teenagers in asylum-seeking centres. The Happiness organises creative activities on a regular basis in 30 asylum-seeking centres in the Netherlands. Please note that it is not allowed to take pictures and/or make videos in the refugee centre.

The participants will do different activities of nature protection like cutting, dredging, pilling up the paths, haymaking and light construction work. You will also work together with other local people who do voluntary nature work. The local rangers are very supportive and looking forward to host you in their beautiful area.‘The Drentsche Aa’ has been nominated most beautiful landscape of the Netherlands.

Volunteers are expected to bring their own tent, airbed or matrass and sleeping bag. You will stay at the beautiful situated private campsite of the State Forestry location Oudemolen. The group will cook for themselves in a barn that is equipped with all cooking facilities. There is one shower and one toilet. Bicycles will we provided, this will be your transportation to the various worksites.

Lage und Freizeit

Of course, the camp leaders and partner organization will encourage the volunteers to put forward their own ideas for a recreational program, but in this project it is a tradition that activities are being suggested and/or organised by State Forestry, e.g. a 'mudwalking' tour on the ‘bottom’ of the Wadden area; a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the world’s largest area of intertidal sand and mudflats. A unique experience! Other activities during the week can be swimming, bicycling, visiting the flourishing city of Groningen or the Westerbork transit 16 camp (where Anne Frank was prisoned).

Requirements:
• Tent, an airbed/mat and sleeping bag
• Old/working clothes
• High top sneakers (needed for mudwalking)
• Rubber boots (working fields can be very muddy!)
• Rain is spread out over the year, so bring warm clothes, a raincoat and a swimming suit!

The ‘Drentsche Aa’ area is a varied old cultural landscape, shaped by age old interplay of agriculture and nature. The ‘Drentsche Aa’ is also the name of the stream that meanders through this area and creates a typical landscape that is declared National Park. It includes 16 authentic villages. The partner in this project is the Dutch State Forestry, commissioned by the Dutch government to manage a large part of the nature reserves in the Netherlands. In 2022 it will be the 14th anniversary of this project in Oudemolen, so project Oudemolen is almost part of the region’s collective memory. This certainly counts for the local residents who have shown a lot of interest in the volunteers and, in some or another way, will always beinvolved in the project. Volunteers can count on a warm welcome.
