What we stand for
Everyone has the right to participate in society in their own way This sometimes requires a helping hand or someone standing next to you to guide the child or family in this process. Huntu uses its expertise, knowledge, and experience to support and guide children and families in this manner.
Together is the central word to huntu. Huntu wants to focus more attention on autism counseling in Curaçao and wants to show that children and families can benefit from this counseling. Huntu offers this guidance at a socially acceptable price for the different groups of clients.
On August 19, 2021, I started Foundation huntu pa e yu. While studying for my bachelor’s degree in orthopedagogy, my interest in working with people with autism increased, in particular working with children with autism and related problems. This is because I also have experience with autism in my private life. After completing the Bachelor’s in orthopedagogy , I also obtained my diploma in postgraduate autism and (random) normal giftedness. During this time, I had worked for several years in Belgium and the Netherlands in outpatient counseling and family counseling for people with autism.
In addition to guiding people, I also wanted more responsibility within the field of healthcare. I continued my Bachelor studies in orthopedagogical management in order to learn more about the theoretical side of what is involved in management and running an organization. After completing this bachelor’s degree, I have enough confidence and fortitude to take the plunge and start a new foundation in Curaçao. I want to use my passion, personal attention, structure, clarity, and perseverance while guiding people and running the foundation.
