ON THE ONE SIDE
A refugee, looking for a place to stay and longing to discover Brussels, its inhabitants, its languages, its traditions, its saviours and its colours.
ON THE OTHER
A shared house or flat with a vacant room and Brussels locals who would like to discover news ways of living, doing, thinking or cooking.
IT’S A MATCH!
Kologa aims to bring those two actors together in order to allow them to share their home in a sustainable way and on an equal footing.
AN ENRICHING EXPERIENCE
Through the sharing of a home, Kologa’s objective is to boost diversity, enhance openness vis-à-vis the other’s life and weave authentic bonds that go beyond preconceptions.

AHMAD, 27 YEARS OLD
“At first, when I started living with people, I wonder ‘Why?’. I thought I wouldn’t be happy. I thought they would be different and I was a bit scared actually. I thought many things would be different. My life is very different from your life. I thought the food would also different… And yet, little by little, I started to feel comfortable around my housemates. Yes, I feel good and I might even feel better in the future.”More testimony
