    Project #1

    Skol pa Desaroyo Integral Tirzo Martha is located at Bahamasweg #23A in the neighborhood of Buena Vista. The school consists out of approximately 260 pupils, whom are divided into different grades, namely grades 1 to 8. The pupils are from ages 4 through 12 years old. There is also a dynamic team of 16 teachers and management team.

    Project #2

    Sandals Resorts International’s philanthropic arm, the Sandals Foundation, has joined forces with the Netherlands’ AFC Ajax team to launch Future Goals, a program that turns fishing nets sourced from the ocean and recycled plastic waste into soccer goals for children.
    With an objective to outfit all primary schools in Curacao with soccer goals and equipment, together we will expand opportunities for children to enjoy the sport while learning about sustainability and the need to preserve our oceans in a way that’s naturally relatable and engaging.

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
