Volunteering Projects

The overall long-term objectives of the Volunteering at Felis- project are:

  • To improve the overall quality of life in Otrobanda.
  • To integrate Curaçoan people, culture, and identity into the European Union.
  • To generate a flow of people ideas and cooperations between Curaçao and the rest of the ​EU.

  • Increase our partners’ experience in multicultural projects and link with a European country which is not geographically situated in the European zone.
  • Consolidate FELIS’ position as an authoritative educational agency in the neighborhood

  •  Reduce self-discrimination, and school drop- out in the target group
  • Increase alphabetization associationism, employability and entrepreneurship of the youths.
  • Increase the Otrobanda neighborhood’s social cohesion, safety and reduce poverty and crime in the long run.
  • Generate a growing bilateral flow of volunteers, youth and youth workers between Curçao and the rest of Europe.
  • Raise awareness about the history of Curaçao, and make it part of EU folks identity narration.
