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.
Projects in the Netherlands
These projects happen across the year at different times. For more information, take a look at the attached documents or keep up-to-date by browsing our Facebook page and our website.
Projects in Africa
UID Mentorship Program
The UID Mentorship Program is a program where a student is paired together with a student mentor from a Dutch University, who is providing guidance, insight, and advice relating to one's aspirations and future academic and professional goals. The peer-to-peer program is also designed for the students to share aspects of their culture and student life for a mutually beneficial relationship.
Projects in Nigeria in 2019
Our African Focus: In the summer of 2019, we were blessed to launch our official UID Nigeria project with the sponsorship of Haella Stichting The Netherlands, and several private donors.
This multifaceted project included:
providing educational assistance to nearly 200 children in the rural areas;
raising awareness of the dangers of illegal migration to over 100 young people;
providing resources that helped to establish some young people in business as budding entrepreneurs.
We hope to expand this project in Africa and we need your help to achieve this. More information will be ready soon, including the first phase project report.
OUR NEXT STEPS
We created many of these in the first years of our existence. Over the next 3 years, we plan to keep working on them, but expanding to new areas where they are most needed.
In particular, we plan to
Replicate our projects in rural areas in The Netherlands and other countries, by partnering with local organizations and training their relevant staff to carry on any of the above projects.
Expand and sustain our awareness, education, and developmental projects in Africa, following the success of the pilot which took place in Nigeria.
