Our organization

Who we are, what we do and where we stand for


Our foundation is founded in 2006 by Henny Smulders. She was already then involved with the building and rebuilding of the Bishop Kalu School.
In 2009 she died in the age of 67 years. After that the foundation was run by Ivon Rotteveel, Edwin Jansen and Esther Jansen, who decided to build an orphanage in Kwale in 2011.
We started with 16 girls and at this moment, we have already 80 girls who we take care of. Together with the 450 boys and girls from the Bishop Kalu School we are supporting over 500 children with education.
Our goals for the future are to build a private school and develop our activities in Kenya. We want to sponsor self supporting activities.  Create businesses run by the girls who left the orphanage with a professional education.



What we want to complete

Number of girls we give shelter — 100%
Number of girls go to primary school — 69%
Number of girls go to secondary school — 25%
Number of girls go to polytecnical school — 6%
Funds to build private school — 10%
