The JW Support Foundation is committed to improve the quality of life of women and children in the developing countries.
Education, health care and the promotion of Fair Trade and Fair Tourism are the main issues we focus on to achieve our goal.
We provide practical support to the poorest of the poor in the world.
In many countries poor women and children are barely functioning in the margins of society. If there is not enough money for food, you can be certain that there is no money at all for medical care or education.
Fortunately more and more small scale projects are initiated in order to make a difference. By people who refuse to give up, but are determined to take action and are in desperate need of our help.
One of our most important ways to help is to actively support local initiatives.
Bangladesh is widely known as one of the poorest countries in the world. Famines, floods, bomb explosions, it seems there is almost never any positive news about this country and its inhabitants.
On the page Financial Adoption you can read more about the children from our Savar project. On Fair Tourism we explain all about the possibilities to discover beautiful Bangladesh or stay in our cozy B&B.
The Slumgirls page tells about our projects in the Dhaka slums.
All these projects are very expensive and for this reason we need donations from many financial supporters.
To generate local income we've started implementing activities for tourists in 2013, such as touring the country and a Bed & Breakfast. Read more about this on our Fair Tourism page.
In our logo we focus on people. We're all united worldwide and need each other. Together we're strong! We're a colourful mixture of different nationalities. religions, backgrounds, and interests.
Orange is the national colour of The Netherlands, red and green are the colours of Bangladesh, red symbolises love and all of us live under a blue sky.
