Yesterday was a special day for our foundation and a couple of participants under the project To Vote, I Voice. Youngsters Elajiah, Jurgen, Lizienne, and Nathan had an audience with His Excellency the Governor of Aruba about the project To Vote, I Voice and the manifesto that was the result of that project.
During this audience, the 4 participants presented their experience during the project, and their experience analyzing how they and other youngsters experience the 4 topics of education, labor, environment, and mental health. Furthermore, they presented the manifesto to His Excellency the Governor of Aruba to indicate the points they believe have to be addressed to ensure a sustainable and more resilient future for Aruba.
A special thank you to Elaijah, Jurgen, Lizienne, and Nathan for representing their groups and for being a role model for other youngsters in Aruba!
