July 27, 2021

In 2021 families, students, and key partners receive sustainable help from Wings of Hope.

ORANJESTAD - Aruba Airport Authority N.V.’s (AAA) “Wings of Hope” (WoH) is proud to be able to assist the Aruban community for another year.

The community support project that has taken off on June 1, 2020, has now become one of WoH’s important Projects in assisting families in need amidst the pandemic. One of AAA’s strategic pillars is Sustainability. This year, WoH’s goals are based on five of the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs): Hunger, Education, Affordable and Clean Energy, Environment/Sustainable Airport Community, and Partnership.

As part of WoH’s Hunger goal, a total of 50 families are receiving assistance through food vouchers from January 2021 until December 2021, which are distributed by the Directorate of Social Affairs (DSZ). The education goal includes two parts: to assist a total of 175 students with their school materials and uniforms and assist 40 students with their school year fee. As part of the Affordable and Clean Energy goal, AAA has collaborated with the University of Aruba for a sustainable “Energy Champion” competition among Primary Schools. Each participating school had to prepare a plan indicating how to reduce the school’s yearly energy consumption by at least 20% by introducing new energy sources for the school. The winning school will receive a prize of AWG20,000.00 to execute their plan. The winner will be announced by July 27, 2021. As to Environment/Sustainable Airport Community, AAA focuses on creating one or more green zone (s) at the airport by reintroducing native plants and vegetation. AAA values partnerships, and that is why this is one of WoH’s main goals and will continue to involve different entities and collaborate on various projects to strengthen these relationships towards a sustainable future.

“Our focus is to contribute directly to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set by the United Nations. Wings of Hope currently contributes to five of these Sustainable Goals, which assist and positively contribute to the Aruban Community, which is a reason to be proud of. Moving forward, AAA will continue to take steps that make a difference towards a more sustainable future for all,” said Director Health, Safety, and Sustainability and WoH leader Angeline Flemming.
