The first steps to explore a partnership were initially started in May 2022. Now, based on detailed studies and discussions, the contours of the Investment and Lease Agreements are further defined. In addition, parties have now received firm commitment from the Dutch Ministry of Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid (‘SZW’) to fund the project. PCN’s Investment manager, Participatiemaatschappij Caribisch Nederland (‘PMCN’), is responsible for all arrangements on behalf of the Pension Fund.

Based on this agreement, PCN will design, develop and build a new childcare facility on Saba, which will be leased out to the Public Entity Saba on the basis of a long-term lease. Alite B.V., who performed the feasibility study under the management of PCN, will be assigned as Project Manager and Design Lead. Upon finalization of the Investment Agreement, a Tender and Construction process for this facility will be announced, which will be managed by Alite B.V. in alignment with the Public Entity Saba.

By working together, both parties confirm their long-term commitment which is critical to support the community of Saba, while meeting all the requirements of PCN’s local investment policy.

The Public Entity Saba is in the process of purchasing the yet undeveloped property for the construction of the much-needed childcare facility, which will house both the Laura Linzey Daycare Center and the Afterschool Care provided by the Saba Girls and Boys Sports Society.
