In the context of the new year, law firm VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne donates packages of reading books to elementary schools on the Dutch Caribbean islands where the firm has offices. The first donation was made recently to Scol Paso Pa Futuro in Aruba; a school for children with a learning disability.
VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne considers education very important. As a result, the firm focuses its sponsoring and donation policy on youth and youth development. In the holiday month of December, VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne chose to send digital Christmas cards instead of paper alternatives, in order for the amount saved to be used to support local education on the islands.
Steffen Hagen, branch manager of the Aruba office, and Julitza Koolman, secretary, handed the package of reading books to the school's teachers. Steffen: "A school for special education such as Paso only has limited means. A teacher told me that the library had even been broken into recently and that books were stolen. Now it feels even better to be able to donate a large package of good, new books to fill the shelves again. The children and teachers were heartwarmingly happy with it!"
