10 % of the profit we make will be used for this goal: create chances for art education (in places with less opportunities) by means of education and/or learning resources, and anything that can be conducive to that in the broadest sense. The foundation HeART 4 Education has been shut down since the 28th of December 2018 because costs to continue a small foundation were high, but the 10% will still find its way to the children:
The first donations were given to the Steiner School in Arua – Uganda (€500,-) and the foundation Stichting Naar School in Haiti ( € 500,-) which were able to buy new products for the pupils to use for art education. The founder of Stichting Naar School in Haiti also joined a free training course ‘Mindful at School’.
The Steiner School in Arua Uganda has 370 pupils. The director of the school is Jimmy Olega. We met in an Art education project in Denmark and I am impressed by the wonderful work he is doing, with a very big heart for (art) education.

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the World. Over 80% of the people are illiterate and unemployed. Marijke Zaalberg used to live in my village in the Netherlands and 20 years ago she decided to move to Haiti. She started the foundation ‘Naar School in Haiti’ and doing an amazing job. She lives in Haiti 9 months a year and with her colleagues she improves lives of 800 children. Main goal is education, and next to this they offer children a warm meal every day and if needed, healthcare and a house. One school is in Kablain and Godinot, high in the mountains.
