International EMEA Award for Get in Touch as 'Best Family Support Program', London 2014

Indigo-Wereld developed the program ‘Get in Touch with people & places in Eindhoven’, meant for spouses of international knowledge workers.

The program helps the ´accompanying´ spouses to feel at home in a very short time. 

Right from the beginning the participants start building their personal network. Attractive trips & tours help them find out what the new hometown has to offer in regard to educational, cultural and social facilities.

Besides, they could orientate on (un)paid jobs, studies or other meaningful activities.

Iro Perera, one of the spouses and co-coordinator of Get in Touch: ‘Get in Touch has been a life saver for me. It helped me connect with my new town. I got a lot of friends. I feel at home now’.

Quote from EMEA Jury (London 2014): 'The programme seems simply, yet highly effective, with a human touch. Well done!'

Get in Touch helps international spouses to find an anchoring in the new residence. Along with their partners, they face the challenge to create a stable home to live up to the investment of their mission.

‘HR management has not only to do with the job and the workload, but should also support the spouses. The program helps them to make friends and to have an idea of what Eindhoven has to offer.’ (Mr. J.P. van Ham, Vice President of the Executive Board of  TU/e)

In other words: happy spouses leads to happy employees and therefore happy employers. 

Get in offers a variety of activities:

  • Weekly trips, tours or network meetings, educationally, culturally and socially to get in touch with people & places and start building a new personal network.
  • Short track projects next to the weekly meetings, such as: dance and music groups, film project, group talks.
  • Coaching & counseling around ‘the challenges of living abroad’ and  (external) support when seeking for (un)paid jobs, studies or other meaningful activities.

In consultation a suitable package will be offered, tailor made to your needs.

The Inner Power


Indigo-Wereld offers  the practical Group Coaching Program ‘The Inner Power, embracing your hidden qualities’.

The program supports students who are struggling with severe study delay or even cessation of study, due to personal and/or social setbacks.

In close cooperation with Fontys Teacher Training College Eindhoven, some good experiences have been achieved with positive results for the students involved and for the college as well.

In five sessions, students get a more positive image of their ‘inner world’. They resume their otivation and take once more the responsibility for their own study career.

Sokaina Erradouane: ‘It has learned me to dare to look a bit further ahead and to pull the best out of myself. I got the feeling that it isn’t that bad to open yourself and that working through bad patches is part of life, with support of others’.

The program helps students to get a better view on obstructive as well as assisting aspects of their ‘inner world’. Supported by a positive approach, they pick up their hidden qualities and motivation. Equipped by this, they are capable to take their responsibility again for their own study career.

We saw that the students were  benefitting from the program, they felt better about themselves and chose more consciously for a positive focus’, (Mr. H.J.T. van de Ven, managing director of Fontys Academy Child and Education).

The program contains various characteristics:

  • Five sessions spread over 5-10 weeks
  • Small groups of 5-10 persons
  • Various methods: group talks, individual instructions, working in subgroups of two or more people
  • A positive focus, based on recognition of hindrances
  • Centered around practical tools and successful experiences
  • Targeting towards ambitions, dreams and sustained perspectives.

In consultation a suitable package will be offered, tailor made to your needs.
