BRUSSELS – Intercultural platform Kif Kif will be launching the first Flemish dating website for people of minority background this autumn. The new website is in response to the boom in dating sites and online marriage bureaus for Muslims.

"These sites are a nice alternative for the traditional arranged marriage orchestrated by the parents," says Geeta Srivastava of www.shaadi.com.

"Whereas a Muslim woman used to have a choice of a handful of men chosen by her parents, now she can choose from millions of men. Muslim women take the initiative just as well as men. It gives them power and self confidence."

Kif Kif will primarily target people of minority background. "But anyone can sign up," coordinator Dany Neudt says.
