During the past church season, church members of the Reformed Church in Bunschoten held a fundraiser. Last September, each family received a piggy bank and the families were able to save money in it. Last year's diaconal causes were Friends for Africa and Jozien Koelewijn.

Both causes are committed to the welfare and a bright future for youth in an African country. The Friends for Africa Foundation works hard to improve education in Malawi. Recently, the foundation has done this by supporting projects in and around schools, such as transporting and commissioning computers and building teachers' houses. Currently, funds raised are being used to build an elementary school in Bolera, a poor village where 1,500 children receive no education.


By the end of 2019, we hope to start construction! Jozien Koelewijn is associated with the Ikaya Lothando Foundation as a missionary worker. This means safe (t)home. This is what she tries to offer the children in the township of Durban, a safe home. Safe from violence, drugs and sexual abuse. Just letting children be children again, through sports, games and creative skills.
