We coach people to get jobs
People who have not worked for a long time. Or have never worked. These are our participants who we help to develop work skills, through coaching and guidance in the workplace. We make acoustic interior products, bags and accessories from recycled felt.
'i-did changed my life because I now really know what I want. I am very happy. ”
The step to success
We make a difference by letting the participants experience how much fun work can be. Everyone's talent is being rediscovered, further developed and strengthened. Our coach then helps in the active search and mediation for a first job. And so now almost 70% of our participants move on to long-term work.
A cleaner world
We like to contribute to a cleaner world with what we make. That is why we developed the i-did felt, made from discarded corporate clothing and textiles. Old KLM uniforms become clear blue felt. Old hospital clothing becomes white felt with a pastel touch. And so downgraded Efteling clothing becomes fairytale blue felt.
We use this to make bags, accessories and interior products. Our participants can use a lot of skills in this, such as sewing, punching, cutting, lasering and assembling. And so everyone gets the opportunity to develop within i-did.
"We offer everyone who is not seen by others, the opportunity to work" - Heidi Willems (Production Manager)
