Net4kids is born
Net4kids was founded in 2003 by Anke and Loek van den Boog. Loek: “We've been giving to charities for years, but we never really knew exactly what kind of concrete projects. We found that we wanted more insight into what our investment was actually doing, and we also wanted more direct involvement.” They decided to start their own family foundation. With this foundation they invested in three projects themselves. Befriended investors became enthusiastic and were linked to suitable projects. Net4kids was born.
Many people wonder why Net4kids focuses on companies. The reason is simple: governments and NGOs have limited striking power. Without an active social role of the business community, the differences in the world will persist and even increase. And it is precisely companies, large as well as small companies, that can make a difference by supporting very concretely defined projects. It gives visible results, children a future, and the companies themselves also become more attractive. For staff, for talent and for prospects.
2022: The NR 1 children's aid organization for companies
Net4kids now works together with local partner organizations in India, Nepal, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, South Africa and Rwanda. More than two hundred and fifty thousand children have already been helped and, thanks to our participating companies, have been given the opportunity to build up a promising life. We are very proud of that. But of course we will continue, because there is still a lot to do. That is why we have a great new goal: we want to be the NR 1 children's aid organization for companies that want to give their social activities more structure and content. In other words: we want to bind many more companies to us, in order to offer even more children a future together, with opportunities, possibilities, an independent and independent existence.
Together we make the gap smaller
With our 1% program we make it possible for every company to participate. It gives structure to your CSR aspirations in a very simple way, and it moves along with the state of your company. And it's for such a good cause: because in the end every company does something, we make the gap really smaller. And the more companies show they are doing something, and that starting small is really better than doing nothing, we create a movement. That's our dream. Will you join us?
250,000+ children helped so far.
5 passionate ambassadors.
60+ companies investing
Here we are. This is our team. Professional, rich in experience and extremely driven. And oh yes, you can also just laugh with us.
