EC2 Saba wins Apple of Orange

Oranje Fonds - Stefan van der Kamp

June 1, 2021

The  team of EC2 is one of the three winners of the  Appeltjes van Oranje 2021. The Apples  are awarded annually by the OranjeFonds ( to three social initiatives that ensure that people can participate in society. This year, the Appeltjes went to three institutions that are committed to contribute to mental strength.

We won this award for the "Ways to Wellbeing" initiative, which contributes to participation of all children in education on Saba by making them more resilient. Some kids may be vulnerable because of: trauma after the hurricane, poverty issues, family displacement, Corona pandemic, isolation, bullying, or learning disabilities.

The use of positive teaching strategies and tailor-made programs enables students to follow regular education as much as possible, in the absence of special facilities for this target group.

EC2 recently hosted a special event to mark the organization’s tenth anniversary, to celebrate receiving the “Appltje van Oranje” award (“Orange Apple award”), to bid farewell to six team members and to welcome six new ones.
