The Bonaire Hotel and Tourism Association (BONHATA) had a check presentation on Friday 6th of February which took place at their office. The literacy program of
Fundashon FORMA was selected to be the recipient of the funds raised during the

and stated that this donation will help people becoming more involved in the
community, will improve self esteem and employment opportunities which will also
have a positive effect on their partner and children.

proud to assist FORMA in this project which already proved to be successful.
