Happiness project – sailing in Eindhoven

If you can make 800 children happy, would you do it ? We made it happen together with t Watersportverbond, High Tech Campus and the Government of Eindhoven. Sailing on the pond of High Tech Campus in Eindhoven! Sports combined with technical challenges for children in a water lab. All at the smartest km2 during the Dutch Technology Week! To be continued next year!

What was the challenge?

Actually there is no challenge, it is just a lot of fun 🙂 This event is really an initiative of Hearttarget because Folkert is really a watersports enthusiast. 4 years ago he saw children enjoying water sports for the first time during an Optimist On Tour event in The Hague. Optimist On Tour is an initiative of the Water Sports Association to introduce children in group 6, 7 and 8 (age 9-11) to water sports. Folkert brought Optimist On Tour to Eindhoven and ensured that the necessary funding could be raised to pay for the event.

With financial help from the municipality of Eindhoven, High Tech Campus, Brunel and Eurest, it is a resounding success every year. Primary schools from Eindhoven and the surrounding area are eager to participate every year and the children of the employees of High Tech Campus see the workplace of their father or mother from a different perspective! What a beautiful picture! Enjoy and play!
