World Store AANEEN

World store AANEEN is the store of the association AANEEN. With every purchase, you support the association.

Everything is sold here out of social commitment.
This beautiful store is located at Gorontalostraat 21 in Amsterdam-Oost, the original starting place of AANEEN. The unique products sold there are 100% Fairtrade, meaning the maker gets a fair price for them, and people and the environment are respected at all times.

Besides the fact that you will find beautiful, special products in the AANEEN World Shop, you will also find special people there. People with a distance to the labor market who get the chance to make a valuable contribution to the AANEEN World Shop. For example, the single mother, without paid work, is able to bake delicious cakes and is invited by AANEEN to sell these products in the World Shop. The proceeds of the cakes are then for herself in exchange for volunteer work. Similarly, the young lady Levana, who is no longer able to participate in a full-fledged job due to her disability, still makes a valuable contribution to the AANEEN World Shop, where she is allowed to carry out her tasks at her own pace and she is very proud of her new daily schedule.

Store space and schooling are provided to these people so that they can best develop as independent entrepreneurs. Part of the proceeds from the sale will benefit AANEEN’s social projects, especially the Hiv/AIDS fight in the Caribbean.

“Out of social isolation and towards paid work!”
