The main goals of the Foundation Willen & Doen is described in two points:
Small scale and self-reliance are the key words for us. The effect of the donations is immediately applied in small-scale projects.
Within the projects we look at ways to increase self-reliance. This makes the projects less dependent on support. Moreover, this strengthens the sense of self-esteem of those involved.
Since 2011 we have focusing our activities in the area around Coffeebay in the Transkei. This rural remote area has traditionally been the area of the Xhosa. Many of the traditions of tribal culture are still in use, while the influences of modern life are also noticeable.
The cultural history makes it a challenge to work in this region. Projects have to borne by the Community and following local culture. The approach here is different from the city.
By specializing in this area, we as a small organization can effectively convert the WILLING into DOING.
We work in various ways on raising awareness here in the Netherlands:
Through working with youth. Our ROC project was a good example of this, as did the HBO internship project and the MBO project.
