When we continued Joanne’s work in 2009 we focused our work on the children Joanne wanted to support and we called our project “Joanne’s Children in Uganda”. However, as we extended our activities in the course of the years, we discovered that we needed a more formal basis for our activities, resulting in the Joanne Foundation.
The way the Joanne Foundation operates is characterized by keywords like: small, controllable, communicative, honest, reliable and transparent.
Our main objective is taking care of the children included in our program and to pay their tuition until the moment they have obtained a vocational certificate. This will enable them to find a job and become self-reliant. The foundation does not want the children to become dependent on its help, we support them until they are able to take care of themselves.
