Sahaya International in the Netherlands

From 2009, Sahaya International (USA) is recognized by the Dutch government as ANBI "(algemeen nut beogende instelling" equivalent to a nonprofit organization). Hence, donations to Sahaya's projects in India and the Netherlands are tax-deductible.


Sahaya's driving forces in the Netherlands are:

Joan Schelpe en Klaas Soethout

Also in the Netherlands, all work is done 100% by volunteers. Our priority is to promote sustainability for underprivileged and orphaned children. In addition, we help to promote self-help groups that do micro-financing activities.
The project has currently 200 sponsored children. Even people of Doorn and Maarn have already decided to sponsor children who were in dire need of support. These programs are done in close collaboration with the NGO READ.

It is important to educate the youth about environmental problems.

To promote education, we are also supporting two schools. The pictures below show the old Mother Teresa School, which collapsed, and the new school that was inaugurated in 2008, and for which we are now raising money to help build up infrastructure and train teachers.

Successful fundraising:
So far in 2011, Joan and Klaas have already raised € 3.546

They have been selling home-made banana jam as an original fundraiser!




In 2008-2009, Joan and Klaas also visited the projects of READ in India geweest, en hebben daar veel sponsorkinderen ontmoet.
