Sharing hearts.

Ton Van Der Smit:

To really connect young people to each other, Ton had thought of organizing a weekend in “the field” where just as many young people from the community would be present as young people (students) from the Netherlands. There were some nice ideas but the best part was that they had to go into the field two by two, to find a place in the shade to share their hearts for two hours. Tell each other about their sadness, pain, disappointment, etc. The weekend was a huge success. Watch the video and enjoy. They also let you share from their hearts.

Also interested in an internship in South Africa. Ask Eye For Others about the possibilities …

Students shape a meaningful project ...

After two years of working and exploring together we finally have closure. We (Eye for Others) and Saxion Colleges in Enschede, Deventer and Apeldoorn entered into a formal cooperation. For at least six years students of all twenty Saxion academies can complete their internships, minors and graduation assignments taking part in our Ritchie project. The entire project will be governed by two guiding principles, the lectureship of Saxions Pride and Eye for Others’ Circular Development Reinforcement. Below, an email is displayed where Jeroen and Marloes, coordinators employed at Saxion, share their sentiments with us after their first-hand experiences with our project and the students currently operating there.

Future plans Eye For Others

Opposed to the rainbow project across the road, the organization has a land of about 10 hectares. This land has unlimited possibilities because we have water rights. This means: we can use water from the river to spray the land. There is a water pump on the land. It takes little effort to restore this pump for the water supply. Thanks to sponsors, the ground is now being made weed-free. This is a hell of a job because it is necessary to eradicate the weed completely because otherwise it will  come back. In this video, project leader Ton van der Smit explains what the future plans for this piece of land are. Enough plans, enough work, but above all ! enough enthusiasm and motivation for the future of the project …
