About Stichting EektaEekta is an urban organization and, since its foundation, has made an active contribution to the participation, social emancipation and integration of the Surinamese community in the multicultural society of The Hague. The foundation does this, among other things, by holding consultation hours, carrying out socio-cultural activities, organizing courses such as administrative support, information afternoons, exercise, walking, yoga, singing, dance and music and digital skills training.
Now it fulfills this role by much more emphatically seeking the way of encounters and dialogues, establishing connections between citizens. Given her experience in working with the Surinamese target group, specific knowledge, a network and a great reputation have been built up in the Netherlands. This has contributed to making Eekta more of a Social & Cultural dialogue centre.
Eekta is visited by residents of The Hague with diverse backgrounds, general and voluntary organisations. These in turn are inspired to set up and carry out activities together with Eekta that are aimed at social tasks and the specific approach of Surinamese elderly people.
Partly because of its recognisability and specific positioning, Eekta is also often approached for cooperation by the municipal welfare/care department, various social institutions and other (neighborhood) organizations asking for advice and to participate in organizations or working groups.
Eekta is located at Boylestraat 20, 2563 EK Den Haag in the Segbroek district. It operates its activities here, where the office is also located.
