Volunteer’s Day - informative, cozy and above all inspiring.

On Saturday, the 3rd of September, we held the KFF Volunteer’s Day gathering at Dravik, Nootdorp. A lot of the foundation volunteers accepted the invitation of Adrie and Sian to come and meet at their home. The volunteers enjoyed seeing each other, sharing experiences and enjoyed the delicious Laotian buffet prepared by Sian and her Thai and Laotian friends.

Volunteers exchanged information on their Laos trip, experiences and volunteer works that they have done last year. Several volunteers are planning to go to Laos soon. Ellen Vreugdenhil leaves for Laos at the end of November. For two months, she will be conducting fun activities such as language games for the youth and the elderly. This is to help them get acquainted with the English language. She has also collected money to buy new reading books for the village library. Moreover, two enthusiastic volunteers from Belgium will also go to Laos for their training period. They will teach the children on how to brush their teeth and to wash their hands properly and regularly. 

 

Ms. Mary van Houwelingen was also present during the event. She is a representative of the Nootdorpse charity shop “The Challenge Cup.” We had a good partnership with them for past three years and they have recently decided to support us once more with € 5000 for the next three years. A great initiative! It is nice to see how everyone becomes more enthusiastic to start or continue their support for the foundation. The stories and experiences of the volunteers are very encouraging. Truly, it was an informative, cozy and above all, an inspiring afternoon!
