NewBees supplies volunteers to BIND. This lovely and very innovative project at the Hembrugterrein in Zaandam is transforming an old building that is no longer used into a hot spot of creative and entrepreneurial activities. The project aims to provide space for creativity at the new location, where young entrepreneurs and artists will be able to meet and work together. The inspiring location will also host performances, lectures and get-togethers for the neighborhood.
Almontaser has been working for Stichting BIND since November. He spends his weekends at the novel project. “I like it very much”, he says. “We all work together with friendly people. It encourages me.” Almontaser (21) is from Syria and he has been in the Netherlands for a year and a half. In Syria he used to work in a factory which made plastic rugs and he is a true handy man, which is why we matched him to BIND: “Almontaser is great! He knows what he is doing and works very hard. He is a great addition to the team!”, says Judith Pelgrom, initiator of BIND.
