WHAT
WE DO

PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

The Andin foundation forms the basis for an international network of schools, businesses and citizens, who together set up small-scale initiatives or join existing projects Our work is based on the self-organizing capacities of people and focuses on community development, leadership, self-development and world citizenship. 

We are active both in the Netherlands and in multiple countries in West Africa. Our platform is based on connecting with the people who are involved. People who are connected to our foundation work from their own strengths, in line with what is going on in society. 

IN THE NETHERLANDS.

The Andin foundation supports Dutch society in the areas of self-development, world citizenship and self-awareness. Moreover, one of our main goals is to help ambitious schools, organizations and individuals help and in doing so contribute to a better international society. This is done in the form of trainings, courses and individual projects

Information for Organizations and Companies

Education in Schools

Organizations and companies can call on our knowledge and experience in connecting people and cultures. Upon request, we can provide information and courses focused on intercultural awareness and world citizenship. This can be focused on a specific question, or just give a general idea about cooperation and communication between people of different cultures. Our offer is of interest to all organizations and companies dealing with people of different cultures and backgrounds.

World citizenship is a mandatory part of the curriculum in Dutch schools. However, in daily practice this subject proves to be difficult to offer to students in a tangible way. The Andin Foundation offers information, project days and courses at schools throughout the Netherlands, focusing on intercultural awareness, leadership and development aid. These projects are tailored to the needs of the school in consultation. 

Exchanges

Cooperation projects for Organizations

Development Projects for Schools

Children and adolescents have an unprecedented motivation to help others, but usually do not have the means to do so in a constructive and sustainable way. Our organization offers projects in which students from Dutch schools come into direct contact with schools in developing countries, working together to set up small development projects. These projects rely on the students' own organizational ability and creativity and teach them that making a difference really is possible. 

Public Courses and Lectures

The Andin Foundation acts as a social platform and network between the global 'North' and the global 'South'. In this function, we also organize (digital) exchanges for pupils, students and professionals. We do this on the basis of individual requests. Please contact us via the contact form for more information. 

The Andin foundation has a connecting role in making contact between conscious and enterprising Dutch companies that would like to make an international contribution and small organizations and companies in African countries that could use this support. 

The foundation organizes lectures throughout the Netherlands. These lectures are open to everyone, but particularly aimed at adolescents and adults from non-western backgrounds. The aim is to connect different cultures and help upcoming generations to be successful in the Netherlands.

This foundation works from the bottom up, rather than the top down, because people themselves know best what is going on in their own society. As an organization, we are involved out of genuine curiosity and we are interested in what motivates people.

Professionals, students, schoolchildren and citizens from African countries know better than anybody else what they need to work on their personal development. Thanks to large networks standing behind us, we have the ability to bridge the gap between those who are eager to contribute to the world and those who are keen to work on their own development and the improvement of society around them.

Support for Schools

Training Teachers

The Andin Foundation supports individual projects that address specific needs for schools. We do this in cooperation with Dutch schools, organizations, companies, other international foundations and existing development projects. Examples include (digital) language exchanges and supplying teaching materials (notebooks, books, tablets, etc.) and  (financially) supporting a specific goal.

Our organization values the development of qualities in the areas of personal leadership and intercultural communication. Therefore, the foundation offers support to train teachers to teach these skills in schools to young people and adults. 

International Network

The Andin Foundation forms the basis of an international network of teachers, schools, businesses and citizens, aimed at passing on knowledge, skills and experiences. Our platform crosses borders to share knowledge and skills digitally and in person.
