The session, which will take place in the drama class room of the St. Dominic High School, includes the possibility to interact with the members of the advisory board.
Cooperating Foundations is a collaboration between five Dutch funding agencies, namely Skanfonds, Oranje Fonds, Stichting Kinderpostzegels, Fonds Sluytermans van Loo and Innovatiefonds Zorgverzekeraars that aims at strengthening society and living up to the motto: “Together we participate, together we are stronger”. The collaborating funding agencies strive to support projects in the Dutch Caribbean that focus on community development or that target children, youngsters and senior citizens.
