About Foresee Foundation
‘Communication’, ‘Collaboration’, ‘Creativity’ and ‘Critical thinking’ are the four pillars that the Foresee Foundation leans on. The Foresee Foundation, also known as the 4C-Foundation, was established in 2013 with a vision to bring 21st century learning to St. Maarten . The four ‘C’s symbolize the vision of innovation in the educational and social sector.
Between 2014 and 2017 , DigiKidz and DigiTeenz projects were launched by the Foresee Foundation in 5 different primary and secondary schools and the public library. It aimed at providing digital learning tools and included the set-up of infrastructure, devices, software, innovation teams etc. creating a digital learning environment for kids and staff.
Through collaborative initiatives , the Foresee Foundation organized two Caribbean Technology & Education Conferences, also known as C-TEC, in 2015 and 2016 with the intentions of having local, regional and international educators collaborate with each other and exchange the use of technology in their current countries and at their current schools.
With the passing of hurricane Irma in September 2017, the medialab in the library was completely destroyed and some of Foresee’s projects in the schools were also heavily affected. This brought a number of the projects temporarily to a halt and the foundation decided to assist schools, after-school programs, daycare centers with the reconstruction by providing uniforms, playgrounds, financial aid for arts- and cultural classes and playgrounds through it Educational ‘Post-Irma Relief’ and ‘Soualiga’ projects.
Observing the need for strengthening of the non-profit foundations in the educational and social sector Foresee Foundation initiated the project ‘NPOwer’ in 2018 with the aim to assist and support civic society through capacity strengthening activities.
After the COVID-19 outbreak in March 2020 Foresee Foundation decided to bring the St. Maarten community a sense of connection through the island’s heritage and culture in producing an audio series of Caribbean folktales, as retold by St. Maarteners. Foresee's latest activity/program is done in collaboration with St. Maarten Development Fund and can be seen in this website: VOLUNTEER.SX!!!
