The “Kids” project in Woensel West has been nominated for the national Vanenburg Corporation Award. It is a prize awarded to housing associations that contribute to social innovations.
The Kids Project in Woensel West has been run by Trudo. The idea is that their tenants get a 100 euro discount on the rent, if they commit themselves to volunteering to supervise children in the district, for example in school and for homework. So Trudo hopes to help the children in the district, and at the same time create more social cohesion.
Other than this project run by Trudo, there are competing projects for housing associations Salland Housing and Housing Arnhem in the race for the prize. The projects can be voted on via the internet. On November 12, the prize will be awarded to the winner.
