We have a request from The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. They are looking for students or alumni that live in the Netherlands but are originally from Afghanistan, Georgia, Iraq, Myanmar or Ukraine.
They have invited human right activists from the countries mentioned above. Each of The participants has been awarded the "local human rights tulip" which they got from the Dutch embassies in their country. The tulip has been presented to people who have had a major impact in their country. In order to respond to this recognition and to strengthen the ties with the Netherlands and our networks, these people are now welcomed trough a visitors programme.
We are looking for students/alumni from these countries to become there “buddies” while they are here. They don’t speak Dutch or English so we are looking for people to help to translate.
You are welcome to join the whole programme which is from 17-20 the of February. Preferably they are looking for someone who is available all dates but if you are only available partially then that’s also fine.
Most of the program will take place in The Hague, only on Wednesday they are going to Amsterdam. During the programme you will travel together with the delegation by bus. Of course you can declare your travel costs. They are looking for volunteers so it’s unpaid, but an investment in your network. You are welcome to join the lunches and dinners if you like to.
Can you help out? Or do you know someone who would like to become a buddy? Please contact us for more details via firstname.lastname@example.org!
