The concept of Heshima
Heshima means 'respect' in Swahili. Heshima is a Netherlands-based foundation which has started its activities in 2006. Its main aim is to facilitate private individuals to engage in Social Projects in Netherlands and/or Africa in the most direct way.
Hehsima allows a broad range of projects, ranging from projects that increases the opportunities for disadvataged individuals to projects that are aimed at the environment.  Heshima acknowledges the potential disadvantages of charity, and therefore prefers very clear objectives and engagement from the different stakeholders.  Heshima has funds and is looking for project-ideas that fit these criteria.

Heshima supports projects financially, through expertise, and through providing infrastructure such as the website and realizing subsidies. The foundation supports its member private individuals through sharing knowledge and experience.

Private individuals can join Heshima with or without a project-idea, contribute financially to a project through Heshima, and engage in realizing the chosen project themselves.
