Vanderful Mission Statement
“Vanderful aims to create safe spaces for children to play and learn new skills in a supportive environment, removing them from unprotected areas where they could be exposed to threats.
Our workshops and centres positively transform lives by skill-sharing, teamwork and facilitating new creative opportunities through Expressive Arts and Surf-Craftsmanship”.
Vanderful is a project run by ‘Seeds of Hope ODV’ (Volunteer organisation). We share skills and creative, vocational opportunities with young people from marginalised areas of society.
Check out the different pages on our website to learn about what we are getting up to and how Vanderful is beginning to expand.
In July 2022, our team returned to Tofo, Mozambique engaging our existing collaborators Gutsakisana & ManuShapes.
Read more on our Blog about what we got up to whilst we were there!
Our vision for the future of Vanderful / Seeds of Hope ODV is to be able to create ‘Vanderful Centres‘ in rural communities around the globe, creating a skill-sharing network of volunteers between developed and developing nations, supporting the healthy and safe development of young people in a rapidly changing world.
Check out our new project page on GlobalGiving. This project will continue to support our collaborator Manuel from ‘Manu Shapes’ in Tofo, Mozambique, as well as strengthening our partnership with ‘Lwandi Surf’ a nonprofit organisation in Ponta do Ouro.
We will bring two expert surfboard shapers to teach and share their knowledge of a sustainable and innovative shaping technique. This technique uses only natural materials that have almost zero impact on the ocean environment and will empower a new generation of sustainable artisans.
Give children the chance to play.
