- The Joanne Noordink Foundation is the latest charity we will support.
Joanne’s work focused our work on the support of children and our project was called “Joanne’s Children in Uganda”. However, as we extended our activities in the course of the years, we discovered that we needed a more formal basis for our activities, resulting in the Joanne Foundation.
The way the Joanne Foundation operates is characterized by keywords like: small, controllable, communicative, honest, reliable and transparent.
Our main objective is taking care of the children included in our program and to pay their tuition until the moment they have obtained a vocational certificate. This will enable them to find a job and become self-reliant. The foundation does not want the children to become dependent on its help, we support them until they are able to take care of themselves.
- The Mineke Foundation dedicated to a charity project in Liberia, aid is provided to the inhabitants of Dabwe Town so that they can develop and improve their living conditions themselves.
- The Young Achievers is a group of youngsters from Katura (Namibia), ages varying between seven and 22, from the former township Katutura in the city of Windhuk. Youngsters from this township normally have limited chances to develop and achieve something in the end. From dissatisfaction about this situation and from a strong drive to achieve something a few youngsters did set up the "Young Achievers"
