Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the HEART!
Our mission is to support and empower local NGO's for them to continue to enable the Bonairean community to build a brighter tomorrow.
Our mission is also to stimulate cooperation among the local NGO's.
Volunteering is the best way to effectively give back to our society. For this reason our vision is for every Bonairean inhabitants to be a volunteer for at least one hour per week.
