Welcome to the
Sapinda Rainbow Foundation

The Sapinda Rainbow Foundation was launched in July 2014.

The Foundation is the brainchild of its CEO, Dirk van Daele, who saw first hand during his own participation in the Clipper Round the World yacht race how sailing could be used to promote leadership and life skills in disadvantaged young people.

Designed for the benefit of the young participants involved, the Foundation’s success is the catalyst effect created by the youngsters within their own communities.

Now I want to inspire others; I have to go back home and motivate people especially the youth to be better. I want to tell my story, and get my community to respond positively. This, for me, is just where it starts.”
