*) The funding of this masterclass will be used to finance our project to capture the story (From Why to Impact) of the “Rainbow Homes” in India by video. This video will be used by the Rainbow Homes in India to promote their wonderful work in their journey to support another 10.000 street girls into a better future. The video will also be used to inspire others to also become a Next Generation Entrepreneur and to honor a remarkable Nyenrode Alumni – the late Ferdinand van Koolwijk. He used his entrepreneurial business skills for the sake of doing good and in doing so achieved more than most people will ever approach in their lives. All participants of the Masterclass will have the privilege to be the first ones to receive a link to the video as soon as it is available.
The fee of Euro 299,- is the minimal required financial contribution to participate. However, if you believe in this initiative and would like to support us you are more than welcome to increase your financial contribution.
