About the Project

The SCR foundation submitted a second request for funding. The PIU approved during QW-1 a pilot initiative to test whether the foundation had the capacity to implement the project, which went well. During QW-2 the foundation plans to finalize the second part of their original plan to renovate the building and make it feasible as a renting facility to other organizations in order to generate in this way additional financial resources.

About the Organization

The function of the recreational center at Hope Estate is to provide an opportunity to senior citizens, being a member, to socialize with fellow elderly citizens at different moments. On public holidays and other special days, joint meals are organized to stimulate interaction between elderly members. Other social events organized are indoor and outdoor gaming. The foundation has a building that used to be suitable for organizing events but suffered severely from hurricane Irma. Once renovated, the facility can also be rented out to external parties in order to generate additional income.
