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 of age. These children participate in a school program, but during the months of July and August, there is the summer holiday break. The volunteers will then 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 local community.

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.

Arbeit

The volunteers will work on the farm and in the natural reserve areas around the farm. They will carry out farm tasks, such as working the land, preparing a piece of land for a new purpose, cutting trees and plants, taking part in harvest activities, repairing fences and guarding cattle. In farming, weather conditions determine to some extent what is urgent. What will be done during the project period will therefore depend on what the farm management considers necessary at the time. Please note that this is a new project: things may turn out different from what SIW as well as the volunteers may expect initially. Therefore, volunteers need a flexible attitude. At the same time, Zonnehoeve is a unique experience and should not be missed!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

The volunteers will have a common room, where they can relax, prepare food and eat. They will bring their own tents. They will camp in a field near the common room. In case of bad weather, they can sleep in the common room.

Lage und Freizeit

Together with the camp leaders the volunteers will discuss the recreational program. The camp leaders will have some ideas, but of course it is possible for the volunteers to put forward their own ideas for this program! Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Connecting with the local community. The farm management is available to explain the philosophy behind the Zonnehoeve operation. Zonnehoeve is located in the vicinity of some beautiful natural reserves. The forest rangers will be able to organise excursions into these areas. Also, the relatively new city of Almere, and of course, the city of Amsterdam offer interesting options for excursions during the weekends.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The organic farm Zonnehoeve is located near Zeewolde, a small town in the province of Flevoland. Flevoland is “new land”: some 50 years ago, in 1968, this area was recovered from the Zuiderzee, a branch of the North Sea. Zonnehoeve was created in 1981. It is an exciting development in agriculture based on a closed production cycle: cattle breeding and agriculture service each other; all waste remains within the farm and is reused. The livestock of the Zonnehoeve – horse and cattle – graze on the lands of the Dutch State Forestry, the organisation commissioned by the Dutch government to manage a large part of the natural reserves in the Netherlands. In close cooperation with the State Forestry Zonnehoeve is working towards a sustainable living environment for man, plant and animal. Apart from its agriculture and cattle breeding branch the Zonnehoeve has a care branch: a living - working community for persons with development problems. This activity is integrated in the production cycle: the participants of the care facility work on the farm and in the bakery.

Anforderungen

Arbeit

The participants will do different activities of nature protection like cutting, dredging, pilling up the paths, haymaking and light construction 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 camp (where Anne Frank was prisoned). Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Connecting with the local community.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

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 2019 it will be the 12th anniversary of this project in Oudemolen, so project Oudemolen is almost part of the region’s collective memory. This certainly counts for the locals residents who have shown a lot of interest in the volunteers and, in some or another way, will always be involved in the project. Volunteers can count on a warm welcome.

Anforderungen

• Tent, an airbed/mat and sleeping bag • Old/working clothes • High top sneakers (needed for mud walking) • 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!

Arbeit

This project is specially put together for the rough and the tough. In cooperation with volunteers of Fairtransport, the participants will work on the maintenance of the 32-meter schooner sailing ship Tres Hombres. This type of ship was first used in the early 20th century. During the maintenance, we use tar which gives a persistent smell that the volunteers will carry with them. The work for this project will be hard and the volunteers should expect long working days. However, in the end it will all be worth it because the volunteers are given the opportunity to work on a secular ship and imagine themselves to be part of the Dutch Golden Age.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will stay in basic accommodation near the Fairtransport grounds. Participants need to bring their own sleeping bags.

Lage und Freizeit

Together with the camp leaders the volunteers will discuss the recreational program. Den Helder historically is home to the country’s main naval base and, additionally, it has a beautiful dune landscape with low dune tops, a dune lake, dune valleys and forests, which form an ideal environment for special plants and birds. Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Connecting with the local community.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Our partner, Fairtransport Shipping and Trading, is situated in Den Helder at the most northern point of the province of Noord-Holland, which is surrounded by water on the north and west side. In 2007, three friends began a shipping company here. They wanted to create the world’s first modern “emission free” shipping company, based in the Netherlands. The prime goal of Fairtransport is to sail cargo in an emission-free way. They try to focus on special products, such as olive oil, wine and rum, which are produced or crafted in a traditional manner. By setting up this company they wanted to raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution that is created by the modern shipping industry and to impact the way in which goods are transported around the world in a positive way.

Arbeit

The volunteers will work in the area surrounding Twijzel, a small village in Fryslân, known for its cultural-historic and blooming blue-grass landscapes and swamp forests. The participants will play an important role in the preservation of the flora and fauna of the area. Together with the state forest rangers the volunteers will do different activities such as cutting, dredging and maintaining the paths. Because of the unique status of the area this is work that cannot be carried out by machines. So the volunteers will play a vital role in the nature preservation. The rangers are very enthusiastic and will tell you all about the special species that live in this area. During the week they will organise excursions and volunteers will work together with local volunteers.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will stay in small bungalows with 6 beds per bungalow. Each bungalow has its own bathroom, toilet and kitchen with equipment. The group will do groceries and cook together for themselves. The State Forestry provides bikes for every volunteer to go back and forth from the accommodation to the worksite. Volunteers will bring a packed lunch to work and eat on the site, either outside or inside a work trailer depending on the weather.

Lage und Freizeit

Together with the camp leaders the volunteers will discuss the recreational program. For example they can explore the area by bike, go swimming, visit a museum or other places in the Netherlands, such as Leeuwarden, a city nearby. The camp leaders will have some ideas, but of course it is possible for the volunteers to put forward their own ideas for this program! Leisure time will also be spent on the general theme Connecting with the local community.
