    Takecare bnb

    Takecarebnb makes it possible that refugees who hold a residence permit can temporarily stay with Dutch host families while waiting for their own home.

    About Takecare bnb

    The Netherlands are confronted with large groups of refugees. People who can no longer live in safety in their own country and are forced to leave their homes. Here they are temporarily housed in AZC’s (asylum centers), waiting for a residence permit. Those who obtain a ‘status’ and are allowed to live and work in the Netherlands, often wait for months in AZC’s on a house of their own. These centers are spread throughout the country, but at the same time isolated from Dutch society: refugees are during that period restricted in contact with the Dutch language, culture and customs.

    Many people are willing to help. For example, by taking them into their home, while they are waiting for an own home. COA (Central Agency for the Shelter of Asylum Seekers) offers a stay arrangement with Dutch families of up to three months. Takecarebnb arranges a solid matching between refugees and host families. This way Takecarebnb contributes to the integration of the refugees on the one hand and on the other hand we offer families the opportunity to offer help in a concrete and at the same time life enriching manner.

    Take care bnb met Helen at the Impact Hub whilst she was co-hosting a seminar on fundraising for start-up Social Entrepreneurs. We were curious about what she was saying so arranged a follow up meeting and weren’t disappointed.

    Take care bnb had reached a point of explosive growth in all areas and knew we had to have better infrastructure to attract more funding and keep the organisation sustainable in the future. Helen listened to our situation and was encouraging yet pragmatic whilst being enthusiastic. She gave helpful advice about what she thought would help our situation and the practical steps to move forward from where we are to where we would like to get to.

    Since meeting with Helen we have taken her advice on board and have managed to move to the next stage of our development in a very positive way. We would recommend Helen and IFC Netherlands to any start up or small Social Entrepreneur who needs assistance with strategy, guidance, fundraising or just some helpful ideas.
