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 celebrates its 10th birthday this year. 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.

In 2014, the KPN Mooiste Contact Fonds launched a campaign to get the Netherlands acquainted with the fund. The message was ‘Hello, is anyone there?’

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.

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.
