Providing hope to children in the Gambia
BY MARIËLLE DAEMEN
@ VOL 34
ON JAN 30, 2018
For Mariëlle Daemen, starting a foundation had been a dream ever since she visited the Gambia for the first time. Back then, she witnessed poverty and many children not being able to go to school. This led her to co-found the Kids2School Foundation.
Starting from the principle that education is a basic right for every child in the world, Kids2School is trying to give more children in the Gambia access to education. Children who out of poverty would never have a chance to go to school and as such could never hope for a better future for them and their family. For the sponsors of the children, the foundation provides a very direct, one-on-one opportunity to contribute to a better world as well.

"It’s never going to work!”
That’s the answer I often get when I present my ideas to city councils. I like to inject a little craziness in our day to day lives to bring people together, and challenge the preconception that people in cities are too individualistic and closed off. Because time and time again, I have found that people from all walks of life and cultures are just waiting for opportunities to get together and connect.
Wander Often, Wonder Always
Life is filled with new beginnings, filled with uncertainty. That’s why you need to be curious, and why you need to wonder and wander. Use curiosity to taste new experience, meet different people, and use it to find out what you are passionate about. It’s never too late to experiment and don’t let the fear of unknown stop you from it.
