Support function project advisors complete first round of consultation sessions Caribbean Netherlands

The Stichting Ocan project advisors were in the Caribbean Netherlands from September 27th to October 5th  2019 to meet with board members of  NGOs and private persons that submitted a project idea or project proposal. NGOs and private persons on Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius had gotten the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on their project ideas or project proposals during a consultation session after with the process of project support could start.

Bonaire

Six private persons  based on Bonaire received a consultation session with the Support Function project advisors!  Of those persons, 4 will establish their own foundation or seek a collaboration with an existing foundation and definitely already  start the support track. As of now they will receive support remotely as well as during periodic face to face sessions on Bonaire in accordance with the project voucher system applicable for the Caribbean Netherlands.

Saba and Sint Eustatius

Having completed our first round of visits to the Caribbean Netherlands we have (unfortunately) not received any responses from Saba and Sint Eustatius.

NGOs and citizens from these islands may have missed the deadline for entry. We gladly encourage Saban and Statian NGOs  and citizens to further develop their project ideas and project proposals or to commence working on their project ideas and project proposals.

Applications are still possible

The procedure for requesting a consultation session and project support remains the same. Stichting Ocan strives to organize new consultation sessions in November 2019 when the project advisors return to the Caribbean Netherlands to  offer  project support  to the NGOs that have started the track.
