At the moment we are preparing our Move Forward project in Suriname, starting September 2017. How many teenagers we can reach out to will depend on the results of the fundraising in the next few months. Fact is we will start the project for at least 10 days, with 200 teenagers. But hopefully we raise enough money to continue our project during the school year 2017-2018.
In Suriname we would like to work with teenagers from different districts of Paramaribo together with the teenagers from Sunny Point, a neighborhood known for it's poverty and crime rate. We want to open our program to those who can use our basketball, dance and rap program as an escape of their daily routine to give them an ultimate confidence boost. Besides our main disciplines we include nutritious food, individual coaching and solving local issues to increase the impact of our program.
We would like to give a large group of teenagers the uplifting experience of our energizing program based on talent - and personal development. We know how much teenagers in Suriname appreciate dance, basketball, music and how talented they are in these disciplines. That's why our entry point is 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.
This project is ready to go, now we need a warm-hearted individual, company, institute, organization to help us increase the impact of Move Forward Suriname. Financially or in goods, contact us so we can find a way to collaborate and make this all happen: firstname.lastname@example.org
