Learning Community [Good Examples]

Some information about the movie and about Nei Skoen

* Nei Skoen is Helmond for New Shoe and it means: a new life starts on new shoes

The idea comes from inspiration from recovery colleges in London and from Kiva Recovery Learning Community:

* Nei Skoen is based on principles of the CARe Methodology and traditions of the Self Help groups

* We consider us more to be a community (participants speak of family) then a college

* There are no professionals as in care givers. The two coordinators have paid jobs but they are experts by experience

* It is open all days of the week. In the morning g more programs like workshops, in the afternoon meeting space, in the evening self-help groups

* There are no thresholds no paper or anything to come to Nei Skoen (see the part about the coat rack)

* There is no obligations to pay anything, there isa 7th tradition jar in which people can contribute if they want.

* We are subsidized by the municipality of Helmond

The movie is composed of several scenes that where filmed and that give some idea about how Nei Skoen works. You van see and hear: some stories of participants, some creative activities, some explanation about Nei Skoen and how it is created. And some fun
