The municipality of Haarlemmermeer has had a city link since 1992 with the municipality of Cebu City in the Philippines. The activities that were set up for this city link were coordinated by the Haarlemmermeer-Cebu Association. (V.H.C.) The original purpose of the V.H.C. used to be:
Exchange and Transfer of Knowledge.
Based on that intention, the internship project was set up in 2004.
At the end of 2010 it was decided to privatize the internship project and the Stagiaires Cebu Foundation (SSCebu) was established.
Chamber of Commerce number: 51486660.
