After the tidal wave hit Sri Lanka in December 2004, Anne-Marie Ros started a fundraise to get Weligama (a fishermen village on the coast down South in Sri Lanka) back on their feet.
The Dutch government accepted her local network in Weligama as a NGO. Ros played a pivot role in coordinating help in the area, as she often was the only European aid helper around. Anne-Marie managed many private projects onbehalf of visitors, after they left Sri Lanka.
In 3 years time she has rebuilt guesthouses, houses and a temple. Started a tsunami-school, sewing-classes in the temple and ABC123 in the fishermen-camp. Anne-Marie helped people to (re)start their business and created new business opportunities by developing products based on specific handy craft technics like lace- and netmaking.
End of 2007 Anne-Marie finished her last tsunami-help-project.
In 2004 Anne-Marie Ros and Lodewijk Ouwens created the concept and pilot training of one year for professional artists to work with art projects in primary schools. After a succesful pilot year of the bik, ran in 7 different places in the Netherlands, the unique curriculum proofed to work.
Besides the national implementation of the trainingsprogram and coaching of the team, Anne-Marie managed the training in Rotterdam. After 5 years 70 artists enriched their professional practise with freelance art projects for kids, it was time for Anne-Marie to focus on new projects.
The training still runs nowadays by among others: Willem de Kooning Academy in Rottedam.
