You can help children! ‘Birthday Boy/Girl’ supports parents around Holland, who are dependent on the Food bank for their children’s birthday parties. Together with a small team of volunteers you will be making special treats for these children. With glue, stapler and ribbons the treats are sure to be a hit! This activity is both fun ánd very useful. So roll up your sleeves and have fun with the other volunteers! The organisation is very happy with your arrival, everyone can participate as a volunteer.

Target group & impact

Some 60.000 children around Holland are unable to celebrate their birthday because there is no money for presents, treats and streamers. In the week of the child’s birthday (from 4 to 12 years of age) ‘Birthday Boy/Girl’ provides a birthday box in addition to the regular food package delivered. Each box is filled with a present, treats for in class, cake, decorations and some other goodies.


‘Birthday Boy/Girl The Hague’ is part of ‘Stichting Leergeld Foundation’. ‘Stichting Leergeld’ is committed to giving these children a chance to participate and increase their chances in society. The foundation helps with providing school supplies, like calculators and laptops, but also assists in a financial way to facilitate membership of a sports club and acquire any equipment needed. The ‘Birthday Boy/Girl’-project is also part of this endeavour.
