Project Growing Up is created by Marieke and Carmen. They were working abroad together when they first implemented their empowerment programs in Asia and South America. Back in Holland Marieke decided to keep Project Growing Up up and running and officially turned it in to a foundation.
Both ladies are still active to guard the success of the foundation and reach out to more youngsters.
They update the programs and create new modules. Together they strive for an on-going development of the foundation and build a solid base by recruiting motivated volunteers and board members.

We do our best to link our foundation to motivated, loving and driven volunteers. We want volunteers to be inspired by our foundation. Ánd, as important, we want to be inspired by our volunteers.
