In April 2015 the Ten Brinke Foundation gave green light for the launch of a new aid project in Sri Lanka. The project´s scope is the purchase of about 30 dairy cows to be distributed to about 20 families in the region Solepura in Sri Lanka. The project was developed in cooperation with the Foundation HAS (NL) and NEDLA (Sri Lanka), who organize this together.
Ghana is a country in Western Africa, bordering the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Togo, and on the south by the Gulf of Guinea. Since there are already trade between the farm in Niger to Ghana, the decision was made to start their an own farm project.
At the request of the foundation Aman-Iman the Ten Brinke Foundation will take care of the financial costs for the construction of a water basin in the size of 100x100 meter in Inadougoum, a small city Northern of Niger in the Sahel.
The most threatening factor to the existence of the Nigerien population are regularly recurring droughts and food shortages. By the end of 2011 the opportunity arose to implement a long cherished idea of buying 17.756 m2 of ground outside the capital Niamey to establish an independent farm project.
In the beginning of December 2014 the Ten Brinke Foundation concluded a contract with Connect International concerning financial aid for the construction of a ktichen with dining room plus a classroom for preschoolers in Wecha, Tanzania.
The existing classroom (see photo) is currently used as a kitchen and is even for the conditions in Tanzanin not longer up to date.
