This group of migrants to Rotterdam and region is our home. We come from all corners of the world
we speak different languages and each of us has a particular story about how he or she reached
Netherlands. But we have one aim: to make a bridge between us and the new country
we live in. We have been living in The Netherlands more than two years in average.
We are already
fluent in Dutch and we studied in the most various universities,
from the Middle East to Latin America and Europe. Still, we do not get
through. We believe there is
a chance through education,
alternative work opportunities and perspectives.


We give talks to all levels of audience about who we are, why we are in the Netherlands as migrants and/or refugees. The aim is to sensitize the society and let them be closer to our experience. Also, this is a way to practice the language and to express and answer to any question the Dutch society might have. These lectures are ideal for schools, higher education levels, companies and/or public spaces.


In partnership with the private sector and in public spaces, we organize trainings for people with less chances, name them refugees or migrants, people with social security or under unemployment. The trainings aim to dignify the participants, activate and update them. We move them out to be active and conscious about their chances in the job market of nowadays. Interested groups can also approach us to participate or organize a training.


Music for primary schools

Funded by FONDS voor Cultuur Participatie and its subsidie IMPULS Muziekonderwijs, the Suriana Foundation in partnership with the OBS Boomgaard in Mijnherrensland runs since September 2016 and for three years, regular music classes at all levels in this school. The project brings music from professional Spanish musicians trained at CODARTS to the children and their teachers. Thanks to the open cooperation of the school director Maurice van de Lisdonk, we were able to submit the project which was awarded in 2016.


Suriana offers you to be part of a multicultural project and calls you to join this course! The aim of this, our project, is to dignify migrants with less chances in the work market creating new bridges in the society. Migrants will follow the course together with Master students from IHS Erasmus University. The purpose is to learn two different aspects of ICT sharing the same environment and knowledge.
