‘Vrienden van De Waai’ is a non-profit organisation that offers financial and material support to OBC De Waai, OOOC De Bries and (N)RTJ De Stormkering, three departments of vzw Jeugdhulp Don Bosco Vlaanderen in East Flanders. Jeugdhulp Don Bosco Vlaanderen aims to support and empower vulnerable youths and the people around them to help make them more resilient and provide better opportunities for growth and development.
The NPO rented a bouncy castle during the corona and lockdown period. Children of all ages absolutely loved it. It helped the children and youths get some exercise and they came back inside much more relaxed. It also taught them how to interact in a socially acceptable manner. The fact that it improved both their physical and mental wellbeing, made the vzw Vrienden van De Waai decide to purchase a bouncy castle. In this way, they want to give vulnerable children and youths a literal ‘leap day’!
