We are an independent organization created by parents and educators that relies mainly on parents contributions and volunteers.
Our team is deeply committed to find the financial support the project needs for a sustainable development, through different sources of fundraising and grants.
The more we get external support, the less we would need to rely on parents tuition fees, and therefore, we could be more accessible to all children.
The importance of nature education
In a city like Brussels, many children suffer from an underexposure to nature and green spaces. Spending time outdoor and access to greener areas is becoming a privilege not everyone has access to. BOS would like to challenge such inequality by supporting the right to every child to access to outdoor learning experiences and benefit from contact with nature.
We always look for ways to make our activities more accessible for families. So far, we have been able to allocate few free places in Graines de BOS and in our holiday camps to families who are not able to pay the fees and we also try to find work/volunteering exchanges as a way of reducing the fees. But we want to do much more!
Investing in BOS is investing in the future
Our goal is to support children to grow connected with the world they live in, and to learn to love and respect the Earth. Raising a generation of caring children, conscious of the environment and respectuos of Mother Earth is the best gift we can do to our planet!
Moreover, being aware that our kids are growing up in a fast changing world, we are investing in their personal growth and well-being by promoting the development of fundamental skills as autonomy, problem solving, collaboration and self-awareness.
