Description of the event: 
This will be our last Walk with the Elderly for this academic year! -- It's a chance for you to enjoy a nice walk, while putting a smile on someone's face! --

We are looking for a group of about 15 International and Dutch students who don’t mind going for a walk outdoors and having a nice chat with the elderly. Afterwards, there will even be some refreshments!

Location: Verpleeghuis Pniël
Address: Oudedijk 15, 3062 AB
> We gather at the reception of Pniël at 13:45. <

Note: Most of the elderly do not speak English (or only a couple of words), but they highly appreciate you being there! Communication is possible in many other ways and we will make sure there are some Dutch native speakers as well to help you out when necessary. Apart from that, the nursing home coordinators very much appreciate your help. Without it, they wouldn't be able to do these kinds of activities. Sign up and see for yourself how easy it is to give back to society and have a fun experience at the same time!
