In cooperation with New Rootz we started a project in which young refugees are getting in touch with our volunteers. They get to know each other and enjoy some social activities. Besides these new fellow-citizens learn more about the student life in Nijmegen and they can improve their Dutch.
In cooperation with T-zorg, we started with a buddy project during the corona pandemic. T-zorg's clients can join this program, in which we try to reduce the loneliness that some are experiencing by linking these people to one of our volunteers. They will have a weekly contact in which they have a walk, a cross-window conversation or a phone call.
Our Loneliness Team gives guest lessons on loneliness to students of high schools in Nijmegen. By discussing this theme in a fun way, by playing games around this topic and by sharing tips and tricks, we want to make them aware of this issue and give them some tools on how to prevent them experience loneliness.
Expected implementation: 1 mei 2021
In samenwerking met Ieder Talent Telt, Bindkracht 10 en het Stadsklooster Nijmegen, werken we aan een nieuw concept: Nimma Talks. Dit is een platform waarop jongeren content kunnen plaatsen, die gericht is op maatschappelijke thema’s in Nijmegen. Via dit platform krijgen mensen een stem die normaal niet gezien of gehoord worden en bespreken we thema’s die soms als taboe worden beschouwd.
Expected implementation: 1 juni 2021

The website gives an overview of all services, so also from other societal organizations in Nijmegen.
