This year the Oranje Fonds is looking for the driving forces behind buddy projects in the Netherlands and the Caribbean.
The ‘Appeltjes van Oranje’ are presented annually to three social projects that successfully connect different groups of people and allow them to reconnect with society. Every year in May, Queen Máxima presents the ‘Appeltjes van Oranje’ at Paleis Noordeinde in Den Haag.
The three best social projects have a chance to win this prestigious prize, which consists of recognition, a bronze statue made by Princess Beatrix and a cash prize of € 15,000.
The ‘Appeltjes van Oranje 2020’ are all about initiatives that create long-standing relationships between buddies. Especially buddies that probably would have never met without their help. Buddies learn from each other, spend time together and really make an effort to better ‘live together’ in our society.
