Netwerk Bewust Verbruiken first imagined the idea of a Babytek in 2015. Finding a partner in GC Elzenhof, the Ixelles/Elsene community centre (Brussels), their patience and enthusiasm allowed for a slow and steady development of this pioneering project. Finally, in spring 2018, the very first belgian Babytek was launched.
Lessons learnt by engaging in this project are now being distilled and documented. The Babytek in Brussels serving as an example, Netwerk Bewust Verbruiken hopes to inspire others to start up their own Babytek, thus spreading the wave of making baby supplies accessible again.
As 4 in 10 children in Brussels grow up in poverty, the services aims to make high-quality baby supplies available for all. Check our ‘online inventory’ to have a look at our products. Want to become a member? Other questions? Become a member or read or FAQ.
Unfortunately, due to the enormous success of our Babytheek Elzenhof, we can no longer accept new members. Our stock is limited and we can hardly keep up with the demand for material. Behind the scenes we are working hard on an expansion of our catalogue and in January 2019 we will re-evaluate this decision. Check our website and Facebook page regularly for updates.
