Impact: Mission: To assist in the rehabilitation of substance abusers, and then prepare them for their return to society and the labor market by means of various programs. Stichting Elizier is a small scale, non-profit organization founded in February of 2009 by three individuals who believed in giving alcohol and drug addicts a second chance in life by providing preventive and rehabilitative programs, and social assistance to families. Stichting Elizier has a plantation and animals on the site as a component of the rehabilitation process. Research has shown that the chances of these former addicts returning to old habits are lessened if they engage in agricultural activities. Therefore, Stichting Elizier is teaching them how to be more responsible by tending to the daily needs of plants and animals. Stichting Elizier’s wish is to someday extend their plantation and build a greenhouse to produce fresh, local organic fruits and vegetables.
