At the moment we are in Suriname for our third Move Forward project. How many teenagers we can reach out to will depend on the results of the fundraising. Fact is we will start the project for at least 10 days, with 70-150 teenagers. Hopefully we raise more money so we can continue our project with a follow up program during the school year.
In Suriname we would like to work with teenagers from different districts of Paramaribo together with the teenagers of Sunny Point, a neighborhood known for it's poverty and crime rate. We want to open our trainingsprogram to teenagers who normally can not afford basketball, dance and music workshops and can use it as an escape of their daily routine. Besides our main disciplines we include food, individual coaching and solving local issues to enlarge the impact of our program on a personal level and boost the level of confidence.
With our 3 days workshop tour we would like to introduce ourselves to the teenagers in Paramaribo. We know how much teenagers in Suriname appreciate dance, basketball, music and how talented they already are in these disciplines. After the workshop tour on different locations, we will start with our main program to bring them a significant life experience in a structured and focussed way. Our partner organizations will tell us exactly what they need and we will listen carefully to the opinion of the local teenagers. 10 dance, basketball, rap coaches and social workers from Paramaribo will team up with 4 Dutch coaches to share their positive and inspiring skills with our selected teenagers.
This project is ready to go, so we will. Of course we would like to get in touch with more warm-hearted individuals, companies, foundations to help us increase the impact of Move Forward Suriname on the long term. Financially, in goods or knowledge, contact us so we can find a way to collaborate and make this all happen: firstname.lastname@example.org
