A couple of weeks ago I was asked to help out with a Dutch initiative called “Gewoon Bijzonder” (“Just Special”). The idea behind the initiative is to bring senior citizens that live in the same apartment building, closer together. By telling stories about their life, sharing dreams with each other, they bring people together. People that live there start connecting, friendships are made, questions are answered and challenges or issues are easily solved.
These are four of the people I’ve visited in their homes and it was great to hear their stories and dreams.
