In 2010 and 2012, Femke travelled to Africa to witness our proactive and life-changing games and programming in action: first to Rwanda with Speed skater Barbara de Loor and then to Kenya with hockey player Sophie Polkamp. The Olympic, World and European Champion advocates on behalf of Right To Play to national media in the advancement of our cause. Femke has participated in events such as the Orange Camping event during the 2012 Olympics in London and also helped in the creation of the national Kinderen voor Kinderen song in 2013.
“Thinking without boundaries and making your dreams come true. Nothing in life is impossible, you can reach whatever you want. That is what I told the children in Dadaab. I hope I have inspired them.”
