Our current board
Vincent van Wenum, chairman of Salek and idealistic 'idealist' on a small scale.
Resident at Deventer. I am responsible for recruitment.
I would like in this way contribute to an equal distribution of wealth in our world. Everyone knows that there is no good balance, but how do you create more balance and how to prevent further imbalance. I would rather see a structural approach in development aid. Where you have a transparent organization that ensures that the majority also gets where it is needed.
This is also the philosophy of the foundation and its members Salek why I'm glad I can contribute to this group of 'do-gooders' a tribute!
My name is Ellen Radstake and I'm already about 5 years secretary and treasurer of the Foundation Salek. Actually, I'm Handyman and jump in when needed.
I think it is important that children all over the world have the same opportunities to work on their future, and especially to have what their future will look like. Choose And that means quality education must be, but also that education is practical. Children need it later can do anything with the labor market, their family, or within their society.
Foundation Salek committed to these goals, in close cooperation with the local population. They know very well what they need. And we also agree how the facilities independently stand to love. Development only makes sense if they can further themselves along, without foreign aid remains. Dependent
I'm Robert Jan Lamers, 40 years (2012), residing in Doetinchem. I am responsible for local contacts in the projects and care for automation within the organization such as web sites.
During my work in Africa, I was ignited by the problems there. The demand for education soon became clear and the lack of transparency of many other major charities, plus the fact that much money in the projects ends up but the organizations themselves, why I'm along with four others in 2006 Foundation Salek began to set, so we can offer themselves on the spot. assistance
In this way I hope to contribute to a fairer distribution of opportunities in this world. Contribute
Education is the future!
Did you know that a NIPO survey shows that 53% of donors believe that charities spend money on the wrong things? Fortunately, we now have Salek, a very transparent organization where every dollar is where it belongs. We are going to personally guide!
We are convinced that the only real solution to poverty, hunger and health of African countries is education.

The reason for our projects is the distressing situation in poor rural villages, despite the wealth of the country to follow, because of mismanagement and corruption by the rich strata of the population. Proper education
Only teaching children will be able to bring this injustice to an end.
We raise money by taking part in activities such as Christmas markets, Queen shearer party and other markets. Establish and In addition, we go to schools to also organize to raise money. Activities in addition to information and cooperation Not in the last place we raise funds and often seek sponsorship from companies and organizations.
