Dear SmartKids,

Bad news again.

Andre KLOMP our former secretary at the Board in the Netherlands has suddenly died.

In 2004 Andre and Kees travelled to Ghana on a holiday trip. During this trip the SmartKids philosophy was born and Kees and Andre were number One and Two, who started their dream to fulfill all your dreams.

Of course, Kees was very important for the Foundation, but so was Andre.

Today the dramatic news reached me that Andre, on a holiday trip, was hit by heart failure during a bicycle trip with friends in Spain.
Apparently, this all happened on April 2nd, 2018. After a few days in coma in hospital he did not recover and unfortunately died on April 7th.

We do loose a good former secretary, a dear friend and both our founding fathers in six years time.

Our thoughts will be with his family and we all wish them all the strength in these difficult days.

On behalf of our Boards in the Netherlands and Ghana.
Ruud Nassette,
International Coordinator and treasurer
SmartKids Foundation
