What is ARUBA DOET?

Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of March 2019, CEDE Aruba in cooperation with the Oranje Fonds will be organizing ARUBA DOET, the biggest volunteer event on Aruba.

The Netherlands and five Caribbean islands highlight these volunteer initiatives and they stimulate everyone to donate their time to help out the people who need it. This helps everyone! 

The event ARUBA DOET started in 2013 on the initiative of the Oranje Fonds. Under the names NLdoet (The Netherlands), ARUBA DOET (Aruba), CURA DOET (Curaçao), BON DOET (Bonaire), STATIA DOET (Sint Eustatius) and SXM DOET (Sint Maarten), these six initiatives highlight volunteering and volunteers while encouraging everybody to roll up their sleeves for (part of) a day. With these six initiatives the Oranje Fonds is organizing the biggest volunteer event in the Kingdom in cooperation with thousands of social organizations and with the support of local partners such as CEDE Aruba.

Heart and Soul

Volunteers are the heart and soul of many community organizations. Through ARUBA DOET the Oranje Fonds and CEDE Aruba emphasize how important actively engaged citizens are for the community and for social organizations. What’s also important, ARUBA DOET helps to improve the image of volunteering and shows how much fun it can be.

Record numbers

In Aruba more than 4,000 volunteers were active at 207 jobs in 2018, a record! Obviously we aim even higher this year, so register your project or sign up as a volunteer.

The Oranje Fonds & CEDE Aruba

The Oranje Fonds is the biggest national fund in the social arena and showcases the best the Kingdom has to offer. Around €30 million is spent each year supporting organizations and initiatives that strengthen social cohesion in The Netherlands and the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.

CEDE Aruba is a development and co-financing organization that supports the development and financing of programs and projects in the field of welfare in Aruba. These programs and projects are brought up and realized by non-governmental organizations (ngo’s) that put their effort in the improvement of welfare provisions in the Aruban community.

Partners

Does your company also support the largest voluntary action on Aruba?

To be able to fulfill all these jobs on March 15th and 16th, 2019 social organizations need a lot of resources. These may include materials such as paint or wood, but also groceries to provide refreshments or lunch for the volunteers.

You can expect much gratitude from the organization, the volunteers and the people to whom the activities benefit. ARUBA DOET extensively will be visible in the media and ARUBA DOET also promotes her partners.
