SHV Holdings has signed a sponsorship agreement for the coming three years with IMC Weekend School Utrecht that offers additional education at the weekend for children aged 10 to 14 in underprivileged neighbourhoods in in Utrecht. The goal of the program is to make the pupils discover their interests, feel connected to society and experience the motivation and inspiration that are needed to find a place in society that matches their particular capacities.
SHV will support three school subjects over the course of three years: New technology, Utrechtkunde and Entrepreneurship. During the three years, we will follow the same class of participating children.
SHV will also sponsor the newest branch of IMC Weekend school: IMC on Tour that provides a similar program for children who are new in the Netherlands (including refugee children with a Dutch residence permit). SHV will specifically sponsor the subject ‘Utrechtkunde’ to help prepare the children for primary school.
