“Being a partner in a MY FOUNDATION children's village is a way to change the future, child by child. Join us and be a part of the change."

- Remee S. Jackman & Mathilde Gøhler
  Founders af MY FOUNDATION

Idea

The idea of MY FOUNDATION emerged well over five years ago where Remee S. Jackman and Mathilde Gøhler, as ambassadors for the SOS Children’s Villages, visited the children’s village Buru Buru and Nairobi’s slum. Experiencing the heartbreaking conditions for the orphans in the slum was a game changer for the couple and especially for Remee S. Jackman beeing a former orphan himself.

During this trip it became obvious to the couple what a big difference you can make in a child’s life by giving them a loving SOS mother and family, and helping the families having lots of love but lack money to support their loved ones. They started fundraising money for project families in the slum and started upgrading the village of Buru Buru by every euro raised. With donations from friends, family and caring spirits all over the world they have managed to raise a total of € 62,680, and build music, dance and computer facilities, hire a teacher for the new facilities and upgrade the library among many other things. It is by this example that the idea of being a partner of a SOS village and fundraising for your village that MY FOUNDATION was established.

Concept

You can support MY FOUNDATION’s general work for a better world for vulnerable children and disadvantaged, in collaboration with SOS Children’s Villages or choose to be a MY FOUNDATION partner for in a children’s village. You or your company will become lead sponsor of a SOS Children’s Village for € 50,000. Through your partnership you help support the operation of the children’s village and also have the opportunity to earmark selected projects in your village – such as a new playground, an upgraded football field, computers and computer education or another change, that you or your business are passionate about.
