small foundation with a big impact

fundraising in Lekkerkerk

Around sixty children from group 5 & 6 of the Royal Wilhelmina School in Lekkerkerk organized a fundraising campaign for Happy Watoto during the Christmas period. During one day they raised €605.14 with the sale of items (reading books, toys) and homemade cakes, and dance performances. The action was initiated with a one-hour powerpoint presentation about our project, made by eight-year-old Evi Nuys.
The proceeds of this Christmas campaign were received by treasurer Fred Arp at the beginning of January and will be spent on the purchase of textbooks. The aim is to give each school child his / her own books to further improve their learning performance.
