This can be youth, or elderly people, but also people who have a physical or psychological disability. With the assistance of professional coaching on board a program that is geared for that particular group will be carried out. For these trips, the shipping company offers the ship at cost price and helps raising funds.
In 1999 a trip was organized for youngsters from various youth support agencies from Rotterdam to Rio de Janeiro, the ‘Villa Lobos’ project. The purpose of this trip was to offer the youngsters a new prospect of a better future by working on board and by following an individual study program.
The results of this project led to many other social voyages, in collaboration with different Dutch organizations.
