Who we are

Abantwane Belanga Foundation Foundation originated from a great love for South Africa, its people and its culture, but above all the involvement with the Sithand’Izingane Care Project. The foundation is built around 4 good friends Anke, Maarten, Miran and Ronald, and consists of an Executive Board, together with a number of board members, chosen to join the board, because of their special expertise in various fields, but also because of their warm involvement with the Sithand’Izingane Care Project, and the country South Africa.

 

The board consists of:

Maarten Bollen Chairperson
Miran Pluijmakers Treasurer
Ronald Pluijmakers Secretary
Anke Mastenbroek Boardmember
Marlies Juffermans Boardmember
Katrin Sijbom Boardmember

The name:
Abantwane Belanga means Children of the Sun and is a phrase that comes from the Zulu, one of the 11 official languages in South Africa. The sun is the source of all life, our central energy and heat source, the start of all growth. Children are also the start of all the growth and the future of a family, the country, its culture, but above all the future of the group of people, which is our commitment as Abantwane Belanga Foundation.
