Donation 99 Announcement – Netherlands, March

Project Fearless

The Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal’s 99th consecutive donation will be made to ‘Project Fearless’ and will take place in Amsterdam on match day, with the presentation details to be shared once they’ve been agreed.

Operating across a number of neighbourhoods in Amsterdam, Project Fearless was founded in 2019 and create after school programs for girls and gender-fluid youths (aged 9-14), which are specifically designed to future-proof the interests and skills of girls. This gives them the tools and confidence to discover who they are, follow new passions, break stereotypes and find their voice!

Project Fearless creates an empowering, supportive atmosphere, giving kids space to play without the pressure of perfection. They learn to celebrate each other’s falls and wins, while building their own resilience and self-confidence, experience varied leadership styles from accessible role models, and discover who they are on their own terms, should that be scientists, engineers, builders, makers, creators or to get to the top of any ladder they wish to climb.

They host a variety of different types of programs from skateboarding to art & science, which has been proven to build the confidence and resilience of the girls and kids who join their programs.

As a non-profit organisation, Project Fearless relies on partnerships and donations to keep the cost of their programs accessible — and in most cases completely free — to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to grow up fearless.
