2018 HOPE Shelves and Storage boxes

Work done
November 2018

What is the problem?
A house that is home to 14 children and two adults by definition has to little storage space. Same goes for the Hope Foundation, especially in the children’s rooms. In addition to the bunk beds, most floorspace is e occupied by cupboards and other spaces – such as under the beds – remain unused.

What is the solution?
The solution is to attach shelves to the walls and place storage boxes under the beds. That way the cupboards can be removed from the rooms.

What is the result?
More floorspace for all kinds of activities, more storage space and a more uniform look which creates rest.

4 Smiling Faces

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
