What does your organization do (100-word description)
Since 1999 the nonprofit Maks stimulates Brussels citizens, primarily from the neighbourhoods Kuregem and Molenbeek, to develop their talents and competences.

That’s why we encourage job seekers and other vulnerable groups to create their own (digital) story.
