Nelleke Hols: Founder and Initiator
In 2004 Nelleke went to Kenia for the first time. The country has never ceased to fascinate here since. In 2009 she decided to give something back to these warm people. She opened a rescue center for children. The next step was the initiation of the JUA Foundation.
Anne-Loes Bal van Dijk: voorzitter
Anne-Loes (56) has been working for Pieter van Foreest in the position of care mediator for 16 years. She met Nelleke when she also worked for this organization. Anne-Loes wants to dedicate herself enthusiastically to the Jua foundation. And keep the good results that have been achieved.
Patty van Houwelingen: secretaresse
8 years ago, Patty did an internship in Jua for half a year for my SPH education and therefore lived in Kenya for half a year. Besides that it was a great experience, she also learned a lot from this experience, which she carries with her to this day. After years of working as an ambassador for JUA, she likes to do this as part of the board. Nowadays she works as a Sociotherapist in GGZ and lives in Rotterdam.
Hetty Tholen: treasurer
My name is Hetty Tholen. Via via I came into contact with the Jua Foundation, a wonderful initiative. Because the previous treasurer wanted to quit, I was asked to take up this position. As a retired person with years of experience in financial aid, I am happy to commit myself to JUA .
