The memorial fund is founded by the Mulder Family to support young Filipinos with scholarships
. In particular young people with potential capacities, but who otherwise have no possibilities to study due to little financial resources at home.
The foundation also will support better facilities for studying. This may be done by building and furnishing classrooms, equipping school libraries, etc.
Projects initiated at the Philippines
The Carmelites on the Philippines assess which youngsters are eligible for a grant. Criteria are established for this selection, like: potential for a successful study, serious lack of financials, good and steady academic performance, etc. The intention is that the scholarship is used for tuition, books and transportation.
Mostly these young people are asked to take on voluntary tasks within the community where they live. For example by working with deaf, illiteracy, organizing cultural activities and sports programs.
The foundation aims to continue the work that Jan Mulder did by heart and soul for his beloved people in the Philippines:
“Supporting the Filipino people reaching higher levels by education”.
