With much enthusiasm from all involved, we have finalised our Brilliant Refugee programme. Both participants told us that knowing their talents has given them new energy, greater confidence and focus, and will help them find their way in the Netherlands. Being more conscious of the ‘dragons’ that stop them using their talents proved to be a good first step towards mitigating the effects of these dragons. They were also very happy with the useful contacts we provided and the pitch training.
We are proud to tell you that Sheeba is about to take her first step towards an internship at a primary school. And that Neda is an amazing painter. She paints on clothing, shoes, bags, home textiles, whatever you want to have decorated. She will come up with the most fantastic tailor-made designs for you. See more of her work on facebook.
We will stay in touch with both through bi-monthly meetings.
