With a team of ten volunteers and three consultants we devote ourselves on a daily basis to initiating schooling projects and raising funds to pay for these projects. We take great care to spend these funds in a transparent, cost-effective and efficient way.
“In 2006 for six months I worked on a voluntary basis in San Genaro, a slum in Lima, Peru. I saw that the educational level in developing countries is very low: Children go to school for half a day and have three months summer holidays. However, I noticed that children in the slums have the same dreams as the kids over here in the Netherlands. So I wondered how the children in the slums could be given the possibility to make their dreams come true. A few years later I decided that I wanted to bring about a change for the better for these kids. By the end of 2009 I founded the StartUp4kids Foundation, because I believe in children’s strength and creativity to start up their own little business by saving and investing in their own talents in a playful way. So they can make their dreams come true under their own power.”
