EVENT DATE: Jun 25, 2016
The SmartKids Foundation (www.SmartKidsFoundation.nl) was founded in 2002 and has since helped 96 very talented but underpriviliged children in Ghana to obtain their Junior- and Senior High School education. With your help we can get that number to over 100!!
The SmartKids Foundation's goal is to maximize the impact of its contributions by sponsoring the education of talented children that would otherwise not receive an education. This not only improves their knowledge, skills and future employability, they will also develop into motivated leaders, making a huge impact on their families, communities and country. The ultimate goal of the project is to be selfsustaining and selfexpanding, as the SmartKids sign a pledge stating they are coresponsible for the continuity of the foundation, both organizationally and financially, for the rest of their lives.
Currently, the SmartKids Foundation has already raised EUR 15,000, and needs to raise an additional EUR 2,500 so that it can select 5 talented children for a 3-years Senior High School education, starting in the academic year 2016-2017. To that end, we have initiated a fundraiser. Gijs Gunterman, Thomas Hazenberg, Jaap van der Meulen, Marijn Trip and Wouter Hazenberg will each try to raise at least EUR 500, to reach our combined goal of at least EUR 2,500. Should we raise more money, we will consider supporting additional talented children. 100% of the funds raised will reach the selected SmartKids, as there is no overhead costs for this fundraiser.
