The best way to integrate is through work. Refugee Company raises funds to offer learn-work programmes to people with refugee backgrounds. These programmes last between six months and three years and are run by our social enterprises A Beautiful Mess and the Mondmaskerfabriek. 

Participants start working in one of our ‘safe spaces’. As a result, they become active, gain experience and build a network. Language lessons, basic civic integration, personal development and well-being are all part of the programmes.

Refugee Company contributes to an inclusive society by:

  1. Helping refugees to take an important step towards social and economic independence by creating jobs, either paid or voluntarily. By participating, people become stronger and happier.

  2. Inspiring society to be more open towards people with refugee backgrounds, show appreciation and help them in their search for a meaningful life in the Netherlands.

In order not to be dependent on factories on the other side of the world, we started accelerating the first Dutch mouth mask factory!

Via our products and services, we contribute to a positive perception of refugees in our society.  Profits made by A Beautiful Mess are invested back into the learn-work programmes, thereby boosting continuity.
