Vrienden van De Waai – Digital tools for vulnerable young people

Thanks to Christine Debeuf

A donation of € 3.600

Vrienden van De Waai aims to support projects that benefit the activities of OBC De Waai, OOOC De Bries and RTJ De Stormkering. In these youth aid organizations, vulnerable young people and the people around them are supported and strengthened in order to make them resilient and give them more growth and development opportunities.

A lot of children and young people residing in the communities not only had to switch to distance learning during the lockdown, but also depended on digital tools to be able to hear and see their parents. Home visits to vulnerable families were also replaced by digital assistance. In order to meet these challenges, laptops and smartphones were purchased with the help of the Alpro Social Fund.
