Strengthening Families Together

Strengthening Families Together

For Papiamentu version click here

Strengthening Families Together is our program for social initiatives in the Caribbean part of our Kingdom. Social initiatives that promote equal opportunities for children, support parents/caregivers in vulnerable situations, and/or combat poverty issues.

Poverty and existential uncertainty are major challenges in the Caribbean. As a fund, we cannot solve these problems, but we can support initiatives that address these issues. With our three-year program, we are supporting fifteen initiatives that help families in vulnerable situations on the islands.

Strengthening Organizations

With this program, we aim to make a lasting contribution to strengthening and sustaining those organizations. This is achieved through financial support, sharing knowledge, and networking.. For three years, participants receive tools to strengthen their skills and capacities to continue as a sustainable organization after the program. Additionally, we will support the infrastructure for capacity building of social organizations through a number of partners

For whom?
