Promoting the self-reliance of children and people worldwide by giving workshop.
Yourright Foundation offers support to children worldwide, but primarily in Tanzania, in the field of self-reliance. We work together with local partners and initiatives.
The foundation pusues the following goals:
We work together with local partners and initiatives. By joining forces, we can help more children and provide better support. In the end we always try to make a difference in the lives of children – regardless of their origin, race, ethnicity and religion.
For the training we use experienced trainers and supervisors from both the Netherlands and locally.
Thanks to the help of our donors, we contribute to a future perspective for children in a less privileged position.
The board consists of a number of enthusiastic professionals who offer children worldwide guidance on a better future. This idea originated with Nicole and Branko in 2015 after a two-month journey through Tanzania. The volunteer work and the training given in Dar es Salaam have left a big impression.
Nicole went back in February 2018 to see what was left of the training sessions. She was pleasantly surprised by the impact that the previous visit had had. The idea that we could not leave it to that was born.
Back at work in healthcare, she told her experiences to Monique. Se immediately became enthusiastic and offered to go on a next trip so she could also share her expertise and experience. A client with a special need who heard this story then said that she also wanted to come along. This made Nicole and Monique think: can we bring people with a special need from the Netherlands to Tanzania as a trainer? How nice would it be if this idea would work out. But if you do it you must do it well.
And so, in September 2018, the Yourright Foundation was established through the notary. A Foundation that enables people with special needs to contribute to our projects as a trainer under expert supervision. As a trainer they use their skills that they have gained in the Netherlands to give children worldwide a head start in the field of self-reliance.
These children see these trainers as an example, so that these trainers gain more confidence and rise above themselves. In this way we bring the two worlds together, Connecting Worlds.
The board is committed to a future proof foundation.
