Who we are

Asian Foundation provides structural aid for underprivileged children in Mongolia, a developing country in Northeast Asia. Children who live in poverty deserve a fruitful life and we wish to contribute to that goal. In all our activities we choose to be led by a Christian life vision. And in the last years we have been able to establish a number of foster homes in Mongolia. 

What we do

We continually provide for our children in education, medical care, proper housing, nourishment, clothing and personal development. We support children, their families and the surrounding area’s without discriminating.   

What we strive for

Asian Foundation strives for children to be healthy and educated, to grow up in safe environments where they can experience love in receiving as well as in giving. We believe, when children mature, that they need to be able to live adult lives in their own culture. Therefore we choose to let Mongolian “mothers” take care of them in the foster homes. Together with local authorities we work for a progress that lasts and continues on in the lives of the children as they grow older.

Mission statement

Our organization in Holland

The foundation Asian Foundation is founded by notarial act in 1999. It is a Dutch organization with a Dutch board. Asian Foundation is registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and is approved by the ANBI (which means that we are approved by the governments Tax Office).
Asian Foundation strives to be as efficient and effective as possible. We keep our overhead costs very low, mainly because we communicate through direct lines and also because our board exists of only 4 members: Nelly van de Merwe (chairman), Okke Huising (funds), Piet Slingerland (secretary), Jan-Paul Polderman (finances).
The day to day responsibilities lie with the local foundation ‘Mongolian Children Foundation’. A team of local professionals (a general manager, an accountant and a social worker) are responsible for managing the local organization under the overall management of Corry Vreugdenhil, the director from Holland. 

Our approach in Mongolia

  1. Family homes (foster homes): Providing underprivileged children with housing, care and an education. We have 4 apartments in the city and 1 house in Kharkhorin where  children live in a family like situation: our Mongolian care givers provide for them like mothers. We now have 50 children tot care for.
  2. Supporting teenagers: A house on a piece of land (haschaa) is used for teenage boys to help them live on their own, we guide them and provide in their housing and education. Teenages girls live in an appartment in the city.
