Based upon business plans developed before return, migrants willing to return from the Netherlands to their countries of origin (CoOs) are supported by the WereldWijd Foundation to receive in their CoO the tools and equipment required for the planned business. These tools and equipment are either donated or purchased before departure in the Netherlands and successively shipped to the migrants’ CoO upon their return.

This pre-departure support allows migrants to return home “with something in their hands” and to start their business or support existing family-businesses quickly, often with tools and equipment of a better quality than those available in the CoO.
