Some testimonials about Boosts for the Better


“We started on this challenge with just questions, and we managed to come up with solutions that tackle the issue on multiple fronts in the end of just five days. Imagine what we can do in a few months or even a year.”


“The experience made is beyond words I can say! For those who wants some adventure with mind boggling challenges it is definitely the best choice!”


“For me, the exchange was a memorable and enjoyable experience. We approached the challenge as clueless individuals and concluded our findings as a bonded and harmonious group.”

Different way

“It shows how Dutch and Singaporean creativity combined can generate an interesting outcome. It also gives us a chance to approach and look into topics in a different way, through the eyes of a new generation. As an Embassy we encourage the collaboration between young Dutch and Asian students, creating possibilities for the future.”
