Global Spring is the umbrella we use for initiatives that support vulnerable children or young adults in developing regions with scholarships or educational/vocational programs. The profit generated by projects under the Global Spring umbrella will either directly support a local program or foundation or be donated to the Global Spring Asia Fund, which supports the Terre des Hommes Sabala project in India (for more information see terredeshommes.nl/en/global-spring)
The Battle of the Dutch Masters: we are currently developing a boardgame, inspired by Dutch Golden Age paintings, that enables self- discovery learning about teamskills and leadership skills. Profits will be donated to the Sabala project. The game will be released before the summer of 2018.
Influencing styles in the healthcare industry. Together with a UK based Faculty of Health and Social Sciences we will develop a boardgame for the healthcare industry that facilitates learning about influencing styles in teamwork and leadership roles. Profits will be donated to the Sabala project.
The Pengaruh project. From September '13 - June '14, we made several orientation trips to West Java, focusing on the city of Bandung, an important creative centre in Indonesia and home to the prestigious ITB. Based on our conversations with local experts, we explored several opportunities and finally initiated a boardgame project in cooperation with a Bandung based game studio, Kummara. Profits have been used to support Jakarta youth with a scholarship that enabled them to finalize their vocational training.
