On a very rainy and windy day in Arnhem Her Royal Highness Princess Maxima of the Netherlands visited the workshop, Reclassering Nederland, on January 31, 2013.
Upon her arrival the Princess was greeted by representatives from Reclassering Nederland and then escorted into the building. Once inside Princess Maxima was given a tour of the facility, met with staff and those participating in the program.
According to RVD, Reclassering Nederland is a program that, “…focuses on reducing the risk of recidivism behavior of offenders.” Essentially, it is community service. Those participating in the program “…refurbish tools for reuse…” The tools are then collected by the volunteer organization, Stichting Gered Gereedschap (Foundation Saved Tool), and sent to various developing countries around the world.
