Vopak WeConnect Projects

The Vopak WeConnect Foundation reaches out to the young people that are living in our nearby communities.

Many young people in our surrounding communities grow up with fewer opportunities in life. Often, they need a helping hand and support to learn that there is a world outside waiting to be discovered. The Vopak WeConnect Foundation can offer this support by helping the youth to acquire useful knowledge and skills, to learn languages, to get inspired by career stories or to help them through music, art or even sports activities. Sometimes there is a need to lay a foundation for their learning like providing internet at school, taking care of necessary stationery or setting up a library. 

Since the launch of the Foundation in 2016, many colleagues at all Vopak locations have engaged with their local community and have started a Vopak WeConnect project. 

Have a look at the project overview below.
