Thijs has been to Uganda several times and has explored the country in detail. In 2014 he came for the first time and that was when he realized that volunteers needed a real non-profit initiative. He himself was confronted with the enormous amounts you have to pay for volunteering and this made him decide to start a project on his own initiative. In 2016 Esther and Merijn joined and together they founded Joeboentoe.
