A new existence, a new job

A new existence, a new job” is a programme run by Instituut Gak aiming to support the integration of refugees in the Netherlands into the labour market.

According to CBS (2018), it appears that no more than 11% of adult asylum seekers who received a residence permit in 2014, have paid work two and a half years later and this figure stands at 4% for women.

The programme seeks to rectify this by supporting sixteen projects for two years aiming to aid settled asylum seekers in entering the market and offers financial support, knowledge and experience sharing, network support, tools to get the projects of the ground and a mechanism to evaluate the projects and stimulate knowledge development.
