The Maryosa Foundation is a Netherlands-based not-for-profit organisation working for a world full of self-reliant people, who continuously motivate and support each other.

We do this by teaching financial capability skills, and by financially supporting students in community-oriented education programmes.

Bring out the best.
Bring in the community.
