Leergeld Netherlands is an association of currently 67 local Leergeld foundations across the Netherlands. The association’s mission is to prevent exclusion of children from families with minimal financial resources. Leergeld Netherlands enables the children to participate with peers from the same age group as it comes to education, culture sports and/or welfare. In this way they give the children a better starting position in Dutch Society.
In the next five years, Leergeld Netherlands is aiming at an increase of 15% of their range. Moreover they would like to optimize the quality of their assistance to the local Leergeld foundations. Leergeld Netherlands would like to assist the local Leergeld foundations in their competencies and resources.
In order to get an insight in the exact needs for assistance and the priorities of the 67 local Leergeld foundations, a needs assessment will be conducted by Context, international cooperation. For this needs assessment several interviews will be conducted with representatives of the local Leergeld foundations. In total 29 people of 14 local Leergeld foundations will be interviewed. Also, a questionnaire has been send to all the 67 local Leergeld foundations. The outcomes of the interviews, questionnaires and other resources will be analysed on the basis of triangulation, which will result in a final report for Leergeld Netherlands.
