SABA DOET: Saba’s national volunteer event

The Lions Club and the Oranje Fonds are proud to bring you the first edition of SABA DOET on March 15 &16, 2019.

The DOET initiative started within the Kingdom over 14 years ago, firstly in the Netherlands, with the Dutch Caribbean islands joining in shortly thereafter. Today there is NLdoet (The Netherlands), ARUBA DOET (Aruba), BON DOET (Bonaire), CURA DOET (Curaçao), STATIA DOET (St. Eustatius), SXM DOET (Sint Maarten) and now SABA DOET (Saba). These initiatives highlight volunteering as well as volunteers themselves, while encouraging every one to roll up their sleeves for (part of) a day, giving everyone a fulllfilling and gratifying feeling of a day well spent, ensuring that community serving organizations get the help they need and deserve.

Heart and Soul

Volunteers are the heart and soul of community organizations and SABA DOET and the Oranje Fonds are emphasizing the importance for our community to have actively engaged citizens helping to make a difference as one whole unit. What’s more is that SABA DOET is on a mission to help improve the general idea of volunteering and community service by showing how fun and creative it can really be.

Does your company support the largest volunteer event on Saba?

In order to execute all of the projects on March 15th and 16th, the participating organizations need a lot of resources. This may include materials such as paint, wood and gloves, or seedlings for a community garden, but also light drinks and snacks to provide to the volunteers.

In 2018, more than thirty (30) social organizations participated with the help of over 1800 volunteers to complete 108 different projects. The first four editions of SABA DOET were very successful and this time around we are hard at work to make this first edition a roaring success.

SABA DOET will take place on Friday and Saturday, March 15th & 16th, 2019. Along with NLdoet, BON DOET, CURA DOET, Statia DOET and ARUBA DOET this community-driven initiative is the largest of its kind in the entire Kingdom.
