KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds

Hello, is anyone there?

Social contact is important to all of us, but it is not a given for everyone. The KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds brings people who feel lonely in contact with the world around them again.

Helping with technology, resources and people

Het Mooiste Contact Fonds is a KPN initiative and has been in existence for more than 10 years. The fund was established in 2007. Its aim: social contact for people who are currently missing it. There are all sorts of reasons for this, for example, illness, a disability or the loss of a partner.

With the fund, KPN supports initiatives by various social partners who stimulate social contact for vulnerable groups. This way, we want to prevent social isolation amongst elderly people and sick children. The KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds contributes by applying technology, resources and people.

Focus on vulnerable groups

Vulnerable groups such as the elderly, people with learning difficulties or long-term and chronically ill children are at the heart of the fund’s projects. They have a relatively high chance of ending up in social isolation. For this reason, the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds focuses especially on these groups.

What the fund does

The KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds makes efforts to prevent or break the cycle of social isolation. Every year, between 1,500 and 2,000 KPN volunteers participate in the fund’s projects. They explain to people with learning difficulties how they can use the internet, visit the Rijksmuseum with senior citizens or serve Christmas dinner at various KPN offices.

Our volunteers also work on projects like KlasseContact, which helps long-term or chronically ill children to stay connected with their classmates and follow lessons remotely. The effort and enthusiasm of these volunteers is invaluable for the fund. All projects look at how ICT can make social contact easier.

Unforgettable Christmas dinners for lonely elderly people
KPN Mooiste Contact Diners

It is important to realize that during the holidays it is not obvious for everyone to celebrate Christmas with loved ones and a cozy, tasty dinner. That is why the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds organizes Christmas dinners for the elderly at Eredivisie clubs throughout the country. People in vulnerable situations in the region are invited to come and celebrate Christmas with us.

In December 2019 Christmas dinners were organized at 17 Eredivisie clubs for a total of 850 elderly people. The guests included residents of nursing homes from the region, who are often picked up by the Eredivisie club's players' bus for this special and unforgettable Christmas outing. In addition to a delicious dinner, there was also a performance and a quiz. At many clubs, a club icon also attended the evening. Think of football legends like Willy van de Kerkhof, Kees Kist, Lex Schoenmaker and Foppe de Haan.
