Participate as organization
What do you gain from participating in ARUBA DOET?
Being part of ARUBA DOET will give a positive impulse to the island as well as to your company or school. On top of that, you are setting a great example and will be boosting your image. It can do wonders internally as well; it can motivate employees, broaden horizons, and open up new networks. The media buzz surrounding such a well-publicized event is likely to result in positive media coverage for your company or group. Students will gain valuable experience when helping out as a (first time) volunteers.
On top of that, it will surely be an incredibly inspiring and fun day! Volunteering works both ways: the participating organizations can reach goals that day that they might not have been able to achieve without your help.
Participate as organization
ARUBA DOET is the opportunity par excellence to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to a better and more livable society. Choose with your colleagues/employees one of the engaging projects and see it as an alternative to traditional team building events or company excursions. Your employees will acquire new skills and have a gratifying experience. But you can do even more! Offer your products or services for free, sponsor materials or provide a lunch. Get your network, clients and media partners involved as well and help finish the job successfully.
Participate as school
Naturally schools -just one class or even all the pupils- are more than welcome to participate in ARUBA DOET. Motivate your fellow class mates and give a helping a hand. You could help organizing and executing a game day in a care home or help renovating a playground.
How can you participate?
From late December onwards, the “Project overview” button will list dozens of jobs that need to get done on Aruba. You can contact the organization that you have selected to get more details and exchange information.
Suggest a project?
You can contact the ARUBA DOET team at CEDE Aruba's office if you would like to suggest a project. You may already have an organization in mind that you would like to help out, or you could come up with ideas based on the causes your company or colleagues support. You may want to lend a hand to a foundation your employers take an interest in, or to the care home where a parent or handicapped child is a resident. Maybe you heard about the needs of a day care center of sports club from a friend who volunteers there. These are all good places to initiate a project or look for odd jobs that need to be done. You yourself will in this case be primarily responsible for organizing the ins and outs. NOTE: only the organization itself however can register the project on this website and only the organization would be the beneficiary of any funding from the Oranje Fonds. Organizations that act as volunteers themselves are not eligible for a donation.
