We launched our first Girls Project on August 2015 in Amsterdam. We offered ten girls the chance to participate in several masterclasses and workshops. The participants also got a personal coach for three months, who helped these girls to make a better and happier version of themselves. From the moment they first met, these coaches and their girls created heartwarming connections.

On Saturday, February the 13th, we ended the project with a final bang. Those that put in the most effort, won a professional photoshoot and had the chance to feel like a model for a day. Fashion designer Monique Collignon allowed us to use her fashion collection ‘Couture Light’ for this photoshoot. At the end of the day, during dinner and drinks, Monique rewarded the 4 winners with their certificates. Newspaper De Telegraaf dedicated an article on the section ‘VROUW’ to this project.

Lisa, you were like an angel who helped us in a moment we needed a light to guide us. You’ve not only helped us find personal coaches, but you helped us with everything. Superwoman! I’m so happy I got this chance and had the time of my life today. Again, I want to thank you for being the beautiful person that you are and for all the other beautiful people that I got to meet during this project. Big hug.

The foundation Become The Best Version Of Yourself really matches my liberal values, which is what the VVD also represents! At the same time it is Lisa Staal who is the driving force behind BTBVOY: What a woman! She put so much passion and faith in it that it’s hard to NOT be influenced by it and think: Yes! I want to help this cause!

On the 12th of February, 2016, the ORANJE FONDS informed us that they wanted to support us. Hence, the third Girls Project started in April that year. During this project we coached 15 more girls.
On Sunday, February 5th 2017, we could successfully finish yet another Girls Project. This time, Dolores Leeuwin (TV-program Klokhuis) handed the girls their certificates.
