Walking to something fun, who's coming?

With whom? The lady (52 years old) lives in the center of Nijmegen, near a RIBW location. She wants to go for more walks and combine that with doing fun things. She would also like to exercise. That is more fun together than alone, so she is looking for a male buddy (50-60 years old) to do things. Madam is in a good mood, creative and likes to talk to each other. What are you going to do? There are terraces, restaurants and shops within walking distance, so those can be the first walks :-) Mrs likes to sit on a terrace or maybe eat out. Furthermore, the lady wants to challenge herself to walk a little further and would like to do so with a buddy. If you enjoy working out together, she would like that very much. What's in it for you? * Nice walk outside * Pleasant interlocutor * Doing something fun together * Volunteer agreement (so you are insured during your work) * Travel allowance * Appreciation (for example in the form of a gift on holidays) * Guidance by the volunteer coordinator and intervision with other buddies We ask: No specific training is required. We think it is important that you: * Have an open attitude and are interested in people with a psychological condition vulnerability and that you treat your fellow human beings with respect. * Can listen well and have a stable personality. * Preferably 8 to 12 months, 1x per 2 weeks available for about 2 hours, more often too. Enthusiastic or questions? Send a message and we'll see if we can make a match together!

Do you like meeting someone?

RIBW Nijmegen & Rivierenland

At our RIBW we have various requests from people looking for a buddy. People who want to drink coffee together at home or out, who want to walk or cycle, want to visit a (second-hand) shop, practice a hobby together, or otherwise. Men and women with different interests and all with the same need: to talk to someone and/or to do something. Because their network is often small, our people are looking for a buddy. If you can be open to someone with a psychological vulnerability, you are of great importance as a buddy with us. People-to-people contact is the most important, so you don't need any specific training. We ask if you want to meet with someone for 1-2 hours once every two weeks, more often is also possible. Handy if you can listen well with a stable personality. We offer guidance and intervision, so that you also get to know other buddies. You also sign a volunteer agreement and travel allowance is possible. We sometimes send you a nice gift and have an annual volunteer outing. And we have participants who are happy you came by 😊 Have you become curious and do you want to know how you as a buddy can really make a difference in someone's life? Then get in touch!

Join us during the Night of the Refugee

NLvoorelkaar

Can you imagine it? That you have to leave everything behind from one day to the next? And flee headlong with your family, your neighbors or sometimes all alone to a destination that is still unknown? 💔 Never before have so many people fled war, conflict and oppression. By participating in the Night of the Refugee, you commit yourself to them: you draw attention to their stories in a positive way and have your kilometers sponsored. The more money you raise, the more emergency aid we can provide together!! 💪🏼 During the 2023 edition with no fewer than 5,500 participants, more than 1.3 million euros was raised! A fantastic amount! This allowed the Refugee Foundation to give Sudanese refugees, among others, access to clean (drinking) water and sanitary facilities. They also provided emergency aid packages for people who had to flee the earthquake in Turkey and Syria and supported them with, among other things, nutrition in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso. Are you also participating this year? Register individually, with your family, friends, sports club, company or school.

Who wants and can be a buddy for me

Marga

Hi, we are also reading this, please read it with due attention. I am an energetic enterprising lady of 71 years old and have a lot of free time. Because of my physical disability and cochlear implant (if you want information about this you can easily look it up on the internet) I hardly see anyone. I'm trying to increase my social network which is very difficult because I'm in a push wheelchair and can't go out alone. While I am an outdoor person. That's why I like having a buddy. I like walking, cooking and eating together, going to the movies, reading books, watching television and talking about this. If you are handy with the computer that would be very welcome and be open to what comes my way and offer a listening ear. Hopefully you are the one who can help me. If you are in possession of a car, this creates opportunities for a day trip, for example. In consultation we can see what we can do for each other, and when this could be done. Hopefully someone has read my story with interest. Maybe goodbye..
