WINWIDE is a non-profit organization based in The Hague. Its mission is to stimulate integration, emancipation and participation in the Netherlands.
Founded in 2009 by Sandra Winifred Fransz who works as counsellor and coach, specialising in integration into a new job, a new life cycle and into a multicultural society. It was during her internship while studying that Sandra became aware of the gap that many women who had moved to The Netherlands were facing, namely, no place for them to practice their Dutch and no place to meet Dutch residents. In close cooperation with these women, Sandra developed and set up the AllTonesTables (ATT) projects, where locals and internationals interested in in-depth debates and intercultural cooperation could meet and discuss social and civic issues from an intercultural perspective.
To date more than 1000 men and women from over 50 different countries, including Holland, have participated in the ATT projects.
The success of the ATT is in its simple objective: to bring locals and newcomers in The Netherlands together, while embracing both diversity and unity. Many of the ATT events are also culinary events so that there is a cross cultural exchange of foods, flavors and people.
