Enlarge the world of children

Work like a Horse is committed to support children who deserve a helping hand. This is done by projects for elementary school pupils in challenging neighbourhoods of Rotterdam, children with autism, students who receive special education, and children staying in a crisis shelter.

Yet, there runs a red line through all of these programs: to enlarge the world of these children and to let them discover their own place in it. Our message is: whatever your situation if you work like a horse, you can accomplish a lot.

Our docs

Within our programs, many personal victories are achieved. No matter how big or small. With these documentaries, we give you a glimpse into the life of five children who have participated in one of the programs of Work like a Horse.


Work like a Horse offers six different programs at this moment. You can find a detailed explanation of the programs here.
