That you have to leave everything behind from one day to the next? And flee headlong with your family, your neighbors or sometimes all alone to a destination that is still unknown?💔 Never before have so many people fled war, conflict and oppression. By participating in the Night of the Refugee, you commit yourself to them: you draw attention to their stories in a positive way and have your kilometers sponsored. The more money you raise, the more emergency aid we can provide together!!💪🏼 During the 2023 edition with no fewer than 5,500 participants, more than 1.3 million euros was raised! A fantastic amount! This allowed the Refugee Foundation to give Sudanese refugees, among others, access to clean (drinking) water and sanitary facilities. They also provided emergency aid packages for people who had to flee the earthquake in Turkey and Syria and supported them with, among other things, nutrition in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso.Are you also participating this year?

Once it has arrived, you can start as soon as possible.- Want to help with everything that is covered in the upper years of HAVO.Being a homeschooling buddy is truly a very rewarding task.

Shahed's previous TOMaatje wrote this about her:"Until last summer holidays, I (as TOMaatje) guided a Syrian girl for 3 years, during which she transitioned from framework to theoretical, with the end result being a T-diploma with an average above 7. A wonderful result that gives me great satisfaction. left, and she can still fall back on me.My reward was her facial expression and that of her parents when I unexpectedly appeared at the graduation ceremony."We hope to welcome you soon if TOMaatje for Shahed or one of the many other children could use help.Regularly
