Not Just A Number

managed by O. Balog (Communication)

About us

"Not Just A Number" has grown out of the "Refugee Project Maastricht", a combined initiative of the InnBetween and SSI, two organizations directly linked to the University of Maastricht.

There are almost 60 million refugees world wide today, and much more who are still in the vacuum of long and complicated bureaucratic procedures. They are more than Just A Number, a name, an ethnicity or a religion. Their struggle to find a common identity in places they have often never heard of, far from their homes, uprooted from their values is a quest we feel responsable to endeavour. Not Just A Number stands for the "re"humanization of refugees in the European context, by linking civil society and other stakeholders to those seeking aslyum to build a whole, new and sustainable life.

Our approach is focusod on a much more personalized and individualized system in response to the inefficiencies of top-down integrational efforts en masse failing to recognize peoples socio-cultural background and ways of interaction. Our mantra therefore, in order to build a bridge, we need both sides on a foundation of trust and human dignity.

Donations that cannot be used for the project

  Mirjam u.  24 February 2017 at 10:32 AM

Dear donors,
when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, the German law and our terms of use provide that we (gut.org gemeinn├╝tzige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realize it.

Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes

Thanks for your support,
the betterplace.org-team
