    Welcome to the web site of Stichting Gelukskinders (English: Lucky Children’s Foundation), the charity organization of Holland’s youngest opera talent Amira Willighagen. Here you can find information about the activities and plans of our foundation, which aims to provide a happier youth for underprivileged children.If a child grows up in happiness, it will become more happy as an adult.

    As our foundation is based in the Netherlands, information and documents will be published in Dutch first. Where possible, translations into English will follow.


    Board restructures to strengthen Gelukskinders

    In order to enhance the efficiency of the Gelukskinders Foundation, the Board is currently in a process of restructuring itself. During the past months it has become clear that not all Board members have been sharing the same vision.

    By choosing a Board composition in which all members share one vision, pursue the Foundation’s goals and leave no room to maintain a personal agenda or to profile themselves, the Gelukskinders Foundation becomes stronger and more effective!

    A number of enthousiastic people have responded to the vacancies we opened on our web site in January. Currently we are carrying the final conversastions with them. As of early June we expect to have the new Board operational!


    EDS supports Gelukskinders

    Excellent Dressage Sales again supports charity. This year they have chosen Stichting Gelukskinders. This foundation was established by opera singer Amira, winner of Hollands Got Talent. Stichting Gelukskinders finds it important to extend the wellbeing of less fortunate children. Their goel is to reach this by building playgrounds in the direct neighbourhood of the child.

    During the auction night, Gassan Diamonds, partner of EDS, will offer a beautiful steel Longines ladies watch for auction. The proceeds of the auctioned watch will benefit the Gelukskinders foundation. Of course, Amira will do a great performance during this evening.
