Create to Liberate, also in 2018!
23 December 2017
2017 won’t be easily forgotten. We were able to help hundreds of young people in youth detention and after release in the Netherlands, Kenya, Malawi and South Africa. Moreover, it was our anniversary year, in which we stood still at 15 years of YiP, the projects that we have done in all those years and all the wonderful people we have met. And of course that jubilee had to be celebrated!
Our 15-year anniversary party at Paradiso Noord started with the 8th YiPArt Photo auction, followed by a party full of creative extravagances from great artists. More than 80 photographers donated a work and many sponsors helped us realizing the auction. Dutch newspaper Het Parool made a special in which our work was portrayed with great respect.
In 2018 we will continue with a packed program for Dutch youth and with plans for new projects in new countries.
Happy holidays on behalf of the Young in Prison team
