Getting to know Utrecht already

Henry and Gulnaz from Pakistan still live in the asylum seekers’ centre in Leersum, but will probably get a house in Utrecht. To help them get to know the city and to build up a social network, Welkom in Utrecht links people such as Henry and Gulnaz with Utrecht citizens. For example, Jos gave the Pakistani couple a one-off tour of the city centre of Utrecht. He showed them the beautiful new library, and of course various other wonderful places near the Oude Gracht. Lisa (on the right in the photo) will show the couple, as a guide buddy, around during the coming months, so they will see  much more of Utrecht, she will also practice some Dutch with them. And of course they will enjoy a chat over a cup of coffee somewhere nice.
