Foremost, our council has an advisory role at the Madurodam Children's Fund, the foundation that yearly donates between 600,000 and 700,00 euros to good causes for children. During their year of administration, the council members also undertake a personal challenge, an activity that contributes to a better society. For by being there for people in your neighbourhood, even on such a small scale, you still have a great significance for the society. They also represent Madurodam during official occasions, such as the National Children's Remembrance on 4 May, and the Madurodam Marathon.
