UNITY IN DIVERSITY
We are a humanitarian foundation existing for the purpose of contributing to complete and sustainable communities, through development and integration projects.
We work with all members of the community including locals, refugees and asylum seekers to achieve this purpose.
MAKING OUR DREAMS A REALITY
To achieve our mission and vision, we organize different types of activities, projects, and events. Since our existence, we have been very active in the field of local integration in The Netherlands and have recently expanded to Nigeria with our developmental and empowerment projects.

“Your generosity has really inspired me to help others and give back to the community, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to help other students to achieve their goals as the UID Foundation has helped me.” - Funmi
Why do we care?
Many times when integration is mentioned, people often think about labor-market integration. In addition, refugees are usually discussed as if they are always a burden to the host communities. This outlook towards integration and refugees has led to the dominant approach to working with them in the host communities. With lesser effort directed towards innovative ways of tackling the causes of humanitarian and illegal migration.
Our foundation continues to lead projects that not only ensure an integrated society where people can thrive irrespective of their backgrounds. We also work to contribute to sustainable and healthy communities in Africa.
