Het Ubuntuhuis is een kleinschalig buurthuis, waar mensen werken en welkom zijn die te maken hebben (gehad) met dakloosheid, armoede, sociaal isolement en leven zonder papieren. We organiseren samen...
The Ubuntuhuis is open all day on Mondays and Tuesdays. Around 25-30 people from various African countries, some of whom speak English or French, come to visit. Dutch people who are experiencing poverty or homelessness also come to us, often because this is one of the few places where they feel at home.
We could really do with people who are willing to play games, help people to practise speaking Dutch, wash up after meals, keep the coffee and tea flowing etc. This all takes place in an informal atmosphere, in a small organisation in which there is little direct management, with colleagues who also like to do things in their own way and at their own pace. Other volunteers have their own experiences of homelessness, poverty or life without a residence status and have gained a great deal of human knowledge and wisdom as a result.
