Youngsters FC Driebergen score for Africa
“As of now all goals count double!”, said the coach to the 12-year olds of FC Driebergen. “Ha, how would that be possible?” the boys asked. “Well”, said the coach, “for every goal you score, your parents will donate € 1,50 to Education Runway. This way you not only score for FC Driebergen but also for Africa.”
And that gave the boys an extra boost to shoot as many balls as possible in the opponents goal. At the end of the season the team had scored for a total amount of € 93! Now, up to you to calculate how many goals they scored! FC Utrecht would be happy with that result!

Booksales at Bussum Cultureel at low due bad weather in 2017 but a success again in 2018
In September 2017 Isabella, Sonja and Joost sold books again at Bussum Cultureel for the 3rd consecutive year, in order to raise money for Education Runway. This year however, due to very poor weather, most potential buyers stayed home. While in the previous 2 years the income generated was substantial, this year a meagre € 106 was raised. But 2018 showed much better weather and after a good day sales Sonja and Joost had raised another € 256 for Education Runway.
OBS Goudenregen Practice what they Preach
All pupils of groups 1 until 8 at public elementary school Goudenregen in Hilversum worked very hard to raise as much as possible money for Kenyan Odiwuor Oyier, in short Odi, to enable him to finalize his studies to become a schoolteacher. Following the succes in schoolyear 2016/17 where they raised € 1.180 for Emelda Otieno also from Kenya, the school and pupils decided to help Odi as well. During the Christmas market at school in December 2017, the children already raised € 700 by selling their selfmade Christmas decorations. In total the 2-year efforts of all pupils resulted in raising close to € 2.400 for Education Runway.
In January 2018 Michiel en Joost made a short movie with all kids singing Jambo Bwane, and this short movie was sent to Odi. This project at Goudenregenschool came to an end in June 2018 and we thank all pupils and teachers very, very much for their support!
