Smart Tulip wants to increase the access to education for the poorest students. Education is the best way to break through the cycle of poverty. By giving out scholarships to poor students, Smart Tulips creates the opportunity for pour students to get a better future.
All projects of Smart Tulip are screened based on the SMART criteria; objectives, activities and results need to be specific and measurable. Smart Tulip cooperates with local organisations and has selected four educational projects and has decides to focus on Vietnam for the first years.
The board of Smart Tulip Foundation has members working in different sectors. The board members are: Youdi Schipper (chairman), Ingrid Halters (treasurer), Ronald Rademaker (secretary), Christine Zoomer en Janine de Vries.
For its projects in Vietnam, Smart Tulip is represented by Onika Pinkus. Onika looks after the monitoring and evaluation of the projects of Smart Tulip. This way Smart Tulip can guarantee the donations are benefiting the poorest children.
Activities financed by the Smart Tulip will be monitored and evaluated at the end of the agreed project period. The evaluation takes place based on the project objectives and is as much as possible quantitative of nature (measurable results). However, qualitative results can also be included in the final evaluation. Smart Tulip will also examine per project if an impact analysis can be carried out using local capacity. By conducting an impact analysis we can evaluate if the project has had an effective impact.
Smart Tulip sends out a newsletter three times a year with updates on our projects and activities.
