WE are the Elderly

WE Organization believes in reaching out to all members of society by providing a platform for cultural exchange. WE Organization facilitates social ‘get-together’ events for and with (Dutch) elderly, aspiring to convey cultures through food, music and entertainment.

WE are the Labels

WE Organization offers a safe & supportive space for challenging prejudice. It proposes a re-thinking of stereotypes and a search for identities beyond them. WE ARE THE LABELS is about sharing real-life stories of those who have been negatively labeled/stigmatized by society, in order to reveal the real human side of them.

Why WE do it

Differences can lead us to designate certain groups as “OTHER” and less than fully human. To go forward, there has to be an awareness and understanding. We must first identify the walls that keep us apart and then knock them down; so we can move together into a better future.

WE envisions an inclusive society that embraces, celebrates and values cultural diversity. Society belongs to all of us. Differences – whether in age, ethnicity, gender, ability, religion or sexual orientation – are welcome, as they bring valuable new perspectives and approaches.

Established in 2016 by Adel AlBaghdadi, WE organization is a socially-driven and action-oriented initiative dedicated to helping cultivate moral and cultural values in the society.

Who WE are

Adel AlBaghdadi (1990), born & raised in Damascus –Syria. I went to Law School to pursue my dream of becoming a diplomat or working in one of the international humanitarian organizations and contributing to world Peace Building. After a long, risky, physically & emotionally tough journey, I arrived in 2015 to the Netherlands where I’m fortunately enjoying the safety and the freedom.

“Social changemaker”, that’s how I boldly call myself; because I make the daily conscious decision to be a part of the solution and not the problem. I am a firm believer in possibilities. I believe in a better future, and I’m determined to create it. For that reason, I founded WE Organization.

My personal experience isn’t about what happened to me, it’s about who I became because of it. It’s believing in my dreams and facing my fears that allow me to live my life beyond limits. Fortunately, I found my “WHY” and shared it with the whole world in this TEDx Talk.

WE organization has co-organized several events with Stichting één land één samenleving, in relation to our annual ‘Nationaal Integratiediners’. Adel presented a valuable story about Syria and his journey to the Netherlands. He is in touch with a great network of proactive and inspiring people who are willing to share their unique stories.”

Benson van der Bij

Stichting één land één samenleving

At Salesforce, we wanted to highlight World Refugee Day among our employees.
I considered it would be impactful if the story was shared in a positive light of how newcomers can thrive in their new communities when others are supportive and understanding of their circumstances. I liked the positive message on WE organization and Adel’s personal story.”

Valerie Brokamp-Meza

Salesforce

Adel’s presentation about his experiences and WE organization was engaging, compelling, and positive. He informed us about WE organization and its activities in fighting for inclusion and against xenophobia.”

WE is creating a positive narrative of how to succeed and flourish in difficult circumstances, not just a lesson for people open to learning more about refugees, but an important lesson in life, universally applicable and beneficial to all of us.”

WE

Mohammad Orwani from Syria, a radio journalist and podcast producer who loves cooking. Mohammad is very interested in cooking with people from different backgrounds as he believes that the different ingredients that we use and the way we cook reflects a common human connection. Each one of us has a story with an ingredient or a specific meal that remind us of memories we've lived and places we've been to. It enriches the memory in a very beautiful way. And this is what he lived in Komşu Kafe Collective, in Istanbul as he volunteered in this community. In komşu, they also believed that there shouldn't be a specific or fixed price for meals, as we might have different opinions about the meals and as all people should have the right to eat.

We are very excited to host Mohammad with WE in Munchgration event: Culinary art fused with activism.

In this event, we will explore cultures and traditions from Malawi and Syria. This lighthearted cooking event will introduce to you chefs from the migrant communities with empowering stories on activism and local recipes to share. Register today and join us on Tuesday 13 July to hear the stories of the inspiring chefs!
