Stichting Uitgestelde Kinderfeestjes
Long-term living in poverty has a lasting impact on children. Social exclusion, insecurity, not being able to participate or being heard, the shame and the stigmatizing character of poverty. This influences the personal and psychological development of the child and increases the chance of falling behind and inequality.
Stichting Uitgestelde Kinderfeestjes makes a valuable contribution to breaking through this vicious circle of child poverty by donating children’s parties to the children. We do not organize the parties. This is what the party locations do. We believe that every child deserves a carefree childhood and if we can make a difference by giving children a beautiful childhood memory than that is fantastic! That is our motivation to set up this foundation.
