Poverty is still the most widely known and most urgent form of all welfare problems in the world. It is not only an issue in developing countries but also in prosperous countries. A distinction can be made between extreme poverty and silent poverty. Extreme poverty implies the in-equal distribution of wealth between countries. Silent poverty means that wealth is unequally distributed within a country. Facility Management can help equalise the national distribution of wealth.
Facility Management can provide individual economic growth and social improvement for people in need by creating new routes into the job market to contribute to welfare of business.

Municipalities in the Netherlands, CSU and various training parties work closely together to develop programs for people with a (temporary) residence permit. Offering training and work experience can contribute to smoother integration. The feeling of ‘belonging’ is essential for status holders. The language barrier is large. The program ensures that status holders are trained and educated to become professional cleaning staff. This stimulates the step to a paid job and thus the chance of a career and more prosperity. The main objective is to offer perspective and security to this vulnerable but promising group in society. Perspective is offered by offering both basic vocational training as a cleaning employee as well as Dutch language and work culture training. The starting point is that the participants will be permanently employed by CSU after the process.
