Contenders for an Apple of Orange 2021
De Ronde Venen – Last week, the Oranje Fonds started the search for special projects from the Ronde Venen that could win an Apple of Orange 2021. This year the theme is Mental Strength and the prizes are devoted to projects that ensure that people who do not have it easy mentally feel good again. Projects from the Ronde Venen that tie in with the theme can register up to and including 1 November via oranjefonds.nl/appeltjes. Three initiatives will receive an Apple of Orange from Queen Máxima in June.
It can happen to anyone: that your mental health prevents you from fully participating in society. For example because you feel depressed, have an eating disorder or compulsive neurosis or are struggling with panic attacks. This can be temporary or something that you have to deal with for a lifetime. Mental complaints have all kinds of causes and occur in all groups of society. Fortunately, there are many projects in our Kingdom that volunteers use to support and take these people by the hand. So that they can participate in society again. These projects have a chance to win an Apple of Orange this year.
Sandra Jetten, director Oranje Fonds: “When people are struggling with mental problems, it is extremely valuable if there is someone who involves them in society. Someone who is not a professional healthcare provider. What they have support from, which helps them to overcome obstacles and take a step further. In this way these people can feel that they can be themselves and that there are others who are there for them. We cordially invite all social initiatives that make this possible to register for the Appeltjes van Oranje 2021. ”
The Appeltjes van Oranje are awarded annually to three initiatives that successfully connect different groups of people or that ensure that people participate in society again. All winners of an Appeltje van Oranje receive a bronze statue, made by Princess Beatrix, and a cash prize of 15,000 euros. Queen Máxima awards the prizes every year. This will be done by King Willem-Alexander in anniversary years.
