Yourright Foundation

How it all started
In 2015 Nicole and Branko went to Tanzania for 2 months. On the one hand to make a nice trip and on the other hand to do voluntary work in Dar es Salaam. This voluntary work with street children and children from the disadvantaged neighborhood of SalaSala and the contacts with Mokicco has both affected them. After their return to the Netherlands they started supporting these activities financially.
In 2018 Nicole wanted to know if the training she had given was still being copied. And so she went to Tanzania again in February. There she was pleasantly surprised by the impact that our previous visit had had. Enthusiastic with stories, she returned to her work in healthcare. She discussed this with colleague Monique who indicated that she also wanted to go to Tanzania for support and training. A client who heard this also wanted to come along and this made us think. Can we do volunteer work in Tanzania with clients with a disability? We thought, why not.
In September 2018 we gave this an official character: Yourright Foundation was born.

Yourright Foundation is a Dutch NGO that enables people with disabilities to do volunteer work, for example in Tanzania, as a trainer.

In the Netherlands, people with disabilities often work in daytime activities. Here they use their skills to perform certain activities. These skills can give children worldwide, but primarily in Tanzania, a head start in the field of self-reliance. These children learn a skill and the people with a disability get the opportunity to experience what it is like to do international volunteer work. We guide these trainers with the preparations and on site.

On the spot, we apply a no-nonsense, reasonably business-like approach to support: the communities and individuals we support are considered “business” partners and co-investors and we treat them as such. We develop and guide result-oriented programs of self-reliance so that a community is prepared and able to provide for their own maintenance in the longer term.
In consultation with local initiatives, we determine which initiatives we support so that they are ultimately responsible.
