About De Kinderwinkel Den HaagThe Kinderwinkel is a project of the protestant community of the Marcuskerk and of Stek – for the city and the church. De Kinderwinkel was founded in 1995 from the Marcuskerk. Stek takes care of the responsibility for day-to-day business, and our MR actively contributes ideas about everything that is going on. De Kinderwinkel wants to be a safe home for children and teenagers in Moerwijk every day.
Two professionals and approximately 50 volunteers from the neighborhood and the church work together in the Children's Shop. It is a place where children, teenagers and their parents/carers of different origins and with different (religious) convictions can meet each other.
The Children's Shop develops numerous activities: children's walk-in, teenage walk-in, parent-child mornings, the well-known teenage restaurant on Thursday evenings, homework support, music lessons, trips during the school holidays, a summer camp and much more.
The work of the Kinderwinkel is also linked to a project at the nearby P. Oosterleeschool: the Bank. This is individual guidance for children who are in a difficult situation or who just want to talk confidentially.
