Stichting Leergeld Apeldoorn-Voorst is thrilled to receive a donation from the Thinkwise Foundation

Increasingly often children in the Netherlands cannot participate in social activities, while their peers and friends can, due to financial constraints. This makes them feel excluded. Stichting Leergeld Apeldoorn-Voorst provides these children with the opportunity to also participate. With a donation of 8,500 Euros granted by the Thinkwise Foundation, 25 children are now able to play sports for an entire year, including  the necessary sports equipment.

“We are very pleased to receive this donation. With this, 25 children can play their favorite sport for an entire year. This way we boost their self-confidence and help them come in contact with other children their age ”.
