Dutch for newcomers

About our NT2 projects

Roeland organizes Dutch day camps in Ghent for newcomers and children with language difficulties. For these camps we work together with IN-Gent vzw.

In 2011 Roeland received the "European Label for Innovative Language Learning" for these projects and in 2017 the award "Jeugdwerk voor Allen" (for initiatives that make youth work accessible for youngsters with special needs).

Our sponsors: the Flemish government, City of Ghent, Nieuwen Bosch Humaniora, Rotary Gent and vzw Interfac. Thank you very much for your support!
