How it all started…
Denice and Sam met in the Netherlands during a family visit from Denice. During this visit, Sam and Denice discussed her plans for emigration to Curaçao and Sam (20 years independent entrepreneur) stated that once she was settled on Curaçao, she wanted to mean something for the community and asked Denice if she had an idea what she could do. to do. Denice, whose background lay within the parent committees and complaints committee, indicated what the current situation was in schools, particularly the outdated and broken school furniture. Once settled on Curaçao they started the foundation on 23 February 2017. The combination of the 2 different experiences and backgrounds has proven to be a success!
