The Foundation has signed partnerships with two non-profit organizations, providing longer-term support:
Room to Read: a non-profit focused on girls’ education and children’s literacy in Asia and Africa. Our donation enables Room to Read to implement its three-year program at a primary school in South Africa, close to the region where our clients are based.
JINC: a Dutch NGO that helps young people to a good start in the labor market. Our partnership focuses on the Rotterdam area, benefiting children mostly from socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods.
