Equal opportunities, regardless of where you are from
About 60,000 households in Rotterdam are in debt, or are at risk of getting in debt. 10% of Rotterdammers live near or below the social minimum. For this group, the lack of affordability of a home is under additional pressure.
- D66 wants to lend a helping hand to those in need. In particular for those who are at the beginning of their life: the children of Rotterdam. We want them to receive a ‘rich school day’, in which healthy breakfasts and lunches are provided to all kids. Participation in cultural activities and sports will also be made available. We believe the best education should be at the fingertips of each Rotterdammer.
- Currently, most of a person’s socio-economic status is determined by where they were born. We believe that is totally wrong. We want to promote equality of opportunity. Every Rotterdammer has his own dreams and deserves the same chance as their neighbour to make them a reality.
