At the beginning of Jobortunity, in 2009, friends around Director Kim Groeneweg organized a 100×100 action. Kim already decided to go to Tanzania, but she did not know if she would have enough financial resources to run the institute. The action was based on the idea that maybe… 100 people could collect 100 EUR (with their friends and relatives) and together these 100 people could collect 10,000 EUR.

Through that action we collected in total 13,000 Euro, so Jobortunity got an enormous support boost from the 100 × 100 action…! In 2012 we repeated the 100×100 action. We achieved 5,540 Euro, which was then doubled by the Triodos bank, so 11,080 Euro.
We believe in the power of many heartfelt gifts forming a huge donation for Jobortunity. The students value this support highly as it gives them a feeling that a lot of people from all over the world support them.

With our heartbeat campaign this year we trust that the goal to keep Jobortunity in service for the next decade and beyond. We more than appreciate all of your heartfelt giving. Thank you!
