PROJECT IN The Netherlands


The goal of Held@Home is to reach out to people who are less fortunate, feel lonely or need a visit. Everyone knows someone close to them who has been affected by Covid-19, in one way or another.

Normally, Project Held regularly goes on mission trips with a team to a number of our projects. During these trips we meet many children and adults in the children's homes and the surrounding villages, we distribute as much as possible and encourage these people.
Unfortunately, traveling due to Covid-19 is currently not possible and the idea has arisen to do what we do during our travels in the Netherlands.

This means that we visit people who could use a visit and encouragement, such as the elderly, the singles, the refugees, etc. Our motto during our travels is 'stop for the one'. Have a chat, bring a present, a hot meal, something that makes that one person feel loved. Of course we can't go out with a group now, but we will visit someone with a maximum of 2 people. You can join the Project Held team, but you can also do something in your own environment for the people around you and give them a helping hand.

This can be done in various ways. Of course we want to help you with this and have already put a number of ideas on paper:

• When Corona got hold of our country, many people started delivering their extra stock of tulips, flowers and packages around to people who could use a helping hand. This is still a warm gesture. We at Project Held have put together packages that contain an encouraging card and a nice sweet gift. This way you have a topic of conversation and people can think about it again when you are gone. The packages cost €5.95 and if you buy 5 pieces, we will send them to you for €25 (excluding shipping costs). In addition to these packages, which we sell through our webshop, we also have a number of beautiful encouragement cards for sale. Please feel free to take a look at our new webshop.

• You can bring someone a bag or box with some groceries when someone has been affected by Corona and may have lost a job or work fewer hours.

• Pray for God to bring someone to your mind to bring you a package. If we let God's love flow, it is inevitable that people will be touched.

We would really appreciate it if you could tell us where you have visited and were able to encourage someone. We will make a map of the Netherlands and place hearts where Held@Home has been active.
Together we make the difference!

Soccer shoes
A poor family in Africa often does not have enough money to send their child(ren) to school. Therefore, they will soon "force" their daughters to marry early so that they are taken care of. For these young women there is no chance to learn and build on their qualities and gifts. Hope4hope in Kenya has decided to include these young women in the football trajectory. In this way they can build on their qualities and limits and also look up and indicate these. In this way they make themselves more resilient and they are stronger in society. There is such great enthusiasm that unfortunately there is always a shortage of football boots, balls and clothing. Especially the shoes wear out quickly and playing football barefoot causes the necessary injuries. These girls are very happy with their own pair of shoes! It gives them the chance to fight, train and get stronger in the game. you see the girls liven up day by day. Sometimes they are on the field before dawn and can't wait to get started. Will you help with a new set of football boots? You have no idea how grateful they are to you!

1 Semester of school fees
Due to Covid-19, war and economic fluctuations, school costs have skyrocketed in parts of Africa. Many families cannot afford this increase. As a result, the children do not receive education and can end up in crime. Education offers the chance to get out of poverty, work on your future and give the children hope. It will also be difficult for our projects to get all the children to school. Despite the sponsorship, the school costs and the supplies they have to provide themselves have become so incredibly expensive. In addition, food and other costs have also increased, so we receive an emergency call from various projects. Take Triza for example: Triza is the 4th child of 6 children and is 14 years old. Her mother is the breadwinner since the father is out of the picture. The mother occasionally works as a cleaner or sells some food, but that is hardly enough to feed all the mouths. Triza has been receiving help from Hope4Hope since she was a little girl. Triza is smart, creative and talented soccer player. Her dream is to become a nurse to help others. For that she has to learn for a few more years. One semester costs 300.00. Who will help her make this dream come true? Of Evans: Evans is a diligent, hardworking and honest boy from a family of 5. He is an orphan. The project has supported him since he was a young boy and he has no one but the project. He grows into a determined boy who wants to become an engineer. One semester costs 300.00. Who will help Evans to make his dream come true? Finally Mwanaidi: Mwaniadi lives with her grandmother as her parents left her behind. Mwaniadi is supported from kindergarten, but the costs are too high. Mwaniadi surprises everyone with her intelligence, talent and, given her young age, very good at playing football. Mwaniaidi can also express herself fluently, which makes her ambitious as a lawyer. One semester costs 300.00. Who helps Mwanaidi to realize her dreams.
