ABOUT THE PROJECT
LECTORATE INCLUSIVE EDUCATION, THUAS
The Hang In There Project is an initiative led by the Student Branch of the Lectorate of Inclusive Education to support students in their journey during the first year at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. We are glad you are here.
We know that at times you may have doubts about whether you are meant to be here. We all have been there. We invite you to follow the link and watch the videos. Following the videos we ask you to fill in a few questions. We will use your responses anonymously to help others like you. Periodically you will receive information from us to encourage you and remind you that you are not alone. We will also check in with you to see how you are doing. We celebrate your journey here at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Hang In There!

LOVE ME FOR ME
Since 2014 Dr. Aminata Cairo has collaborated with students and with members of the transgender community in writing stories for children of the transgender community. Initially in the US, but now in the Netherlands the stories are being promoted in reader’s theater with students and members of the LGBT+ community. Our goal is to get the stories published, develop an accompanying discussion guide, and continue to share the stories.
