Who are we?

SIW is a versatile Dutch non-profit exchange organization (NGO). For more than 65 years, SIW has been receiving foreign volunteers on various projects in the Netherlands and Dutch volunteers have been sent to projects all over the world. In total, this concerns approximately 250 broadcasts and receptions per year. SIW falls under three international networks (Alliance, CCIVS and SCI).

SIW's mission is to encourage people to broaden their horizons. SIW does this by bringing volunteers into contact with other cultures. In this way, SIW wants to increase intercultural understanding, contribute to the personal development of volunteers and encourage them to dedicate themselves to a better society “for and by volunteers”.

The activities of SIW are organized by approximately 75 enthusiastic voluntary employees, supported by an office in the heart of Utrecht.
