Get matched with a NOAH friend
With the NOAH friendship platform you get to know new friends in Maastricht. If you are looking for more personal contact, you can register for NOAH friend where we match you 1 on 1 with someone with whom you share the same hobby or interest. Such as exercising together, cooking together or going out. Someone you can laugh with and have fun with.
How does it work?
When you register for NOAH friend, we will contact you within two weeks to schedule an introductory meeting with you. Our team would like to get to know you. We are curious about who you are and what motivates you to participate in NOAH. Together we talk about your hobbies and interests and get to know each other. After this conversation, we will see whether someone from our registration list fits your profile. Finding a NOAH match regularly takes four to ten weeks. If we have found a NOAH match, we will contact you immediately to plan a NOAH meeting together. During this meeting we will introduce you to each other and make some practical agreements together so that you can immediately start your NOAH friendship.
As a NOAH team we give you a push and, as a NOAH match, it is up to you to shape this new friendship.

NOAH is not a buddy project, where one person helps another. We do not offer daytime activities or services, no help with practical chores or personal care. With NOAH friend you get to know someone with whom you share the same hobby or interest. This friendship is equal. NOAH is not a dating program.
