Involved and responsible. For the world around us. Nearby, and far away. Not because it’s a trend, but because it’s within us. It’s part of who we are. From the beginning of Floreijn on. In other parts of the world, we are involved in the sponsorship of children and education of students. In Kenia, we make sure that young adolescents have the proper education. Not only financially, but also personally we take action. We regularly have contact with the students. Help them to get somewhere. Speak truthfully, be good and caring for each other. By supporting financially, we also help people who are being suppressed, regardless of their race, religion, or other aspects.
Floreijn believes it is important that her employees do not only have a heart for our clients, but also for the people around them. Therefore, Floreijn has a plan for volunteer work within workhours. By being personally concerned and rolling up our sleeves, we also invest in our (local) society. Close to where we are.
We believe that poverty is more than just a shortage of money and supplies, but rather a shortage of hope and prospective. With the long-term sponsorships of many children (4 to 18 years old), mainly in Kenia and Uganda, Floreijn invests in the lives of young boys and girls through Compassion. They get the hope and prospective for a better future. In this way, there can actually be seen a change in the situation of many families. Frequently, our employees visit the various projects where these children receive education, nutrition and medical care. Furthermore, Floreijn invests in the lives of young adolescents in the slums of Kenia with an above-average intellect and leadership potential. We do this through providing them the opportunity to receive academic education at a university in Kenia through the Leadership Development Program from Compassion. Of course we have met these young men and women personally, and we know that their lives, and that of their families and friends, have changed in a special way, through the investments that we have been able to make in their lives.

International Justice Mission Netherlands
IJM protects the poorest people from violence, in nearly 20 communities from over the whole world. They do this by cooperating with local governments. They investigate who is immured without any evidence against them. IJM proves their innocence and represents the victims in court. In that way, they make sure that the victims are released and are being freed of all false accusations. Moreover, IJM helps to arrest criminals. They support the lawsuits against rapists of children and other suspects of sexual abuse. For every freed client, IJM creates an aftermath-plan with the help of shelters. Trauma counselling and finding proper education or work are important aspects of this. Furthermore, IJM gives local training and coaching to police, judges, medical staff and other professionals in order to strengthen the judicial systems.

On the foot of the Hottentots-Holland mountain range in South Africa, is Children and Youth Care Centre'Goeie Hoop’. This centre was named after the famous ‘Cape of Good Hope’. It offers an alternative ‘home’ for abandoned, neglected and abused children from 0-18 years old, coming from the surrounding slums. Floreijn support the Van den Berg family financially.
