Saba gets ready for Saba Doet

Saba is gearing up for Saba Doet, the volunteer action event of the Oranje Fonds, this Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12.

A grand total of 23 projects have been registered of which one is a double-day project. In total there are 567 spots for volunteers, which already have been largely filled. Almost 400 t-shirts, caps and small first aid sets were handed out to the volunteers during the kick-off event last Friday, March 4. There are still open spots for volunteers to fill.


At the kick-off, coordinator Johan Schaeffer gave a presentation on the two-day “Make a difference weekend” event which is always held Kingdom-wide. The Oranje Fonds in the Netherlands is the initiator and sponsor of Saba Doet, and the Doet events in the other parts of the Kingdom. On Saba, the event is executed by the Saba Lion’s Club.


The Doet events serve to promote volunteering and the strengthening of NGOs. Saba Doet has been growing steadily since its inception and has turned into a true community-wide event. Two additional projects and three organizations have registered this year for the fourth edition of Saba Doet.

“We are very happy with the addition of Saba Cares and the Saba Girls and Boys Sports Society Afterschool Care,” said Schaeffer. The organization where Schaeffer works, Body, Mind & Spirit (BMS), has also joined with a project this year.
