OUR SUPERSTAR STAFF

One of our unique strengths as an organisation is our inspiring staff force. They are the father- and mother figures, mentors and role models at all areas of life for our children to look up to and feel supported by. We ask of them to practice what they preach and walk the talk as you can only reproduce who you are. We support them in this through offering monthly one on one coaching sessions and seminars and workshops in order to develop skills and mindsets needed in both their professional and personal life. Trainings range from computer skills, trauma counselling and mindfulness to leadership and self-development.

MANAGEMENT

My vision is to provide a safe space where children are allowed to enjoy their childhood, but also where they develop a strong self-esteem, self-worth and become accountable individuals who participate in society. Project Playground is my baby, it is my dream come true and my life's work. It is my purpose and my gift to my own children and the future generation. A world which is a little bit better, safer and happier than today

My vision is a world where everyone leads healthy lives with high self-esteem, happiness and humbleness where they value themselves enough to also value others. I wish to inspire people to understand their capabilities and worth within mind, body and soul in order to decrease their Ego and increase their Self-Esteem.
