Joeboentoe | Board of Directors
I would like to introduce myself to you! My name is Esther Cup, 30 years old and living together with husband and two cats in Deventer. In the hustle and bustle of our luxurious western life it is so easy to forget how privileged we are and to forget to look at the people who need our help.
With my position as secretary at the Joeboentoe foundation I hope to contribute to better living conditions for people in developing countries.
Why volunteer for Joeboentoe?
The whole concept of non-profit is key for me too volunteer. Why pay a couple of thousand euros for helping people who really need it? In the past I tried too volunteer in Nepal but simply could not afford it at the time. This should never be a reason not to help somewhere, anywhere. On this platform we give people a chance too help without the enormous amounts of money you have to pay with other organisations. This way everybody can share their knowledge or skills to help and make the world a little bit better.
That's why I give my time for free so you can also!
Instead of dreaming and thinking of better ways to live, why not just do it?
Joeboentoe is founded on the believe that we can do anything we want if we just work together. Furthermore we feel profit and volunteering are two words that don't go well together. The same goes for development projects; all of the money should go to the people that need it the most. If you feel the same way, come to Uganda to volunteer or help us by donating to our causes.
