Stichting Arjati ( Breda)

"Looking for your roots, for where you come from. It's very much the topic at the moment among the Indo-European community. The third and fourth generation are getting increasingly curious and maybe they also feel the urgency to find every bit of knowledge, the stories and the secrets about our ( personal) Indo-European past, before a whole generation layer will disappear and we can't ask them anything anymore. And where do you start your search when you don't have anyone left?

Such a search is fun and exciting, but also overwhelming; so much information and search options out there!

At Arjati, we like to connect the generations and we also want to provide a platform for the third and fourth generations searching for their roots. sharing knowledge, experiences, but also practical help by searching together for puzzle pieces and making discoveries together.

Come to our booth where we would love to talk to you about how we can build this platform together."
