Uniting for Children Foundation (UFC)
The organization is run by the Foundation for Children Uniting, formed in 2001 by the Foreign Relations and Consular Corps Curaçao.
International Children's Day
The Bazaar will take place within the framework of the International Children’s Day of the United Nations. The purpose of this event is to promote cultural exchange and contributing to a child-friendly multicultural environment where harmony and respect can prevail. The idea is that funds can be raised, with the Bazaar and with the help of the public, for the benefit of children's projects as GreenKidz and Encilia’s initiative. We are very honored that the Governor accepted to be the patron of this event.
The proceeds from the Bazaar goes to children's projects in Curaçao (GreenKidz and Encilia). Both initiatives contributes to providing children with a stable environment (Encilia) and by teaching them to care and be responsible for the environment (GreenKidz). The UFC welcomes other initiatives and projects, where the proceeds of the Bazaar can also possibly be divided. New projects / initiatives for the children can be submitted until September 1 to the Secretariat of the UFC.
The program starts at 10 am and lasts until 4 pm.
Everyone is welcome. Entrance is free!
