American Helen Dyer is credited with the quote, “Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mould the present into a future of which we can all be proud.” Bonaireans raise their voices loud and clear with the annual Bon Doet every year.

A two-day event, Bon Doet is one of the largest volunteering initiatives in the region and is organised by the Bon Doet Team in collaboration with Oranje Fonds. Now in its 13th year, the campaign will be held on 15 and 16 March 2024. Once again, large numbers will gather to perform various jobs at local associations, foundations, or healthcare institutions.

Those who volunteer welcome the opportunity to serve and have fun while doing so. Families and friends register for jobs so that they can work alongside each other. Others who are unsure of what jobs would be most suitable are guided by the Bon Doet team. From giving neighbourhood youth centres or schools an uplift to enjoying recreational activities with seniors, there’s always something for everyone to do.

Are you interested in putting your voice into action this March? There are several fun jobs on the list waiting for would-be volunteers. You can visit the Bon Doet website for more information or to register as a volunteer.
