About

Afrikaanderwijk
Coöperatie

The Afrikaanderwijk Cooperative links existing workspaces, shopkeepers, producers, social organizations, and the Afrikaander Market. The cooperative encourages sustainable local production, knowledge exchange, cultural development, and entrepreneurship based on shared responsibility and participation. The goal is to make Rotterdam Zuid and Afrikaanderwijk a stronger and financially more stable area with active inhabitants and entrepreneurs. Based on years of presence in the area, the Afrikaanderwijk Cooperative knows the power of local communities and small-scale open organizations in which learning and working come together. The cooperative is a neighborhood enterprise that realizes that the effort that man produces is scarce and therefore valuable for the society. The Cooperative increases reliance and strengthens infrastructures. This way  create opportunities to increase the self-organizing capacity of an area by offering labor, services, and products, while at the same time preventing waste of talent.
