ISN organized an afternoon in ‘de Vreugdehof’, a residential care center for the elderly in Amsterdam Zuid. We chatted and danced with the elderly while serving drinks and snacks, and de Vreugdehof had organized a singer to come and perform. Focusing on personal attention and company for the elderly people, we brought joy and a smile to their day while giving back to the community.





Fairfood International & ISN organized a benefit concert. It was a night of live music by our very own students. A sum of 1000 euros was raised to support fairness in the sugar cane industry. Find more photos here.
