Project Details

Providing chances, support, attention and love to the underprivileged in Suriname.

As a foundation Colorful Chances Suriname wishes to provide attention, support and love to children in need in order to make them appreciate life and laugh again. Currently active in Suriname and French Guyana, we hope to assist in the development of opportunities.

In Suriname there remain to be many children and adults. Who do not have access to common educational, social, cultural and medical facilities. Therefore, we wish to provide assistance in procuring the basic needs to the underprivileged.

Chances for children and disadvantaged individuals in Suriname through adoption, education, creativity, microloans, sewing courses and taking care of children. In order to govern the welfare of the children and adults we hope to share our inspiration of idealism and share the talented people we have uncovered in Suriname and the Netherlands.
