You're Wwelcome

Guide. Administration. Finance. Integration. Happiness.


We are a young and dynamic organization who critically observes society. We noticed a negative vibe in regards to migration and immigrants. This leads to personal problems and isolation for people with a migration history. Consider employment, financial challenges, language fluency, health and raising children. If we’re not careful, it may lead to societal struggles and unrest on both sides.

What will we do? For starters, we unburden the newcomers with personal advice. You ask, we deliver. We investigate, we explain, we translate and we mediate on your behalf. We collaborate with a variety of partners, both governmental and NGO’s. Everyone has his expertise, and we make sure that you get to them well prepared. We help you get the right documents, so you don’t have to return again and again.

In addition we promote a life of health and happiness in your new country. We guide you with financial advice, we organize workshops and activities related to sports, lifestyle and health. And we promote the mutual integration of the various cultures in Belgium.

Wwelcome contributes to an open society where everyone can feel at home and valuable. Regardless of background, skin color, sexuality or gender. Everyone is equal, and we are not all the same. The differences in culture are beautiful and will be promoted. The differences in life quality… will disappear.
