Ten years of the Foundation Willen & Doen
Sharing and caring for each other, Wil Groot, who comes from a Catholic family with sixteen children, was introduced. As a child he wanted to become a missionary, just like his aunt Afie. Years later, Wil received a book with AIDS stories in Africa. These stories touched him, partly because he was now HIV positive. That night he had a dream about orphans in South Africa for which he would build a house. The next day he decided: I'm just going to do this. Not much later, Wil boarded the plane to South Africa, and the Willen & Doen Foundation was born.
Dream of a Free Spirit takes a unique look at the work of Wil Groot and the Foundation Willen & Doen. What does Wil actually do as a quartermaster? And how are promotions launched? Where do you walk in a country that is in almost everything different from ours?
Wil regularly ends up in remarkable situations. Look through the eyes of this special modern missionary at present-day South Africa and its inhabitants. A country that is beautiful and hard at the same time. A damaged country, but with hope for the future.
