Mission and vision

The Maryosa Foundation is working for a world full of self-reliant people, who continuously motivate and support each other.

Maryosa promotes self-reliance by first penetrating to the core of a problem, and look for a solution to that problem together with the target group. Our target group are teenagers and young adults, mostly coming from developing countries.

We believe in the power of good education for the development of young people. First and foremost, Maryosa wants to help young people to channel and develop their own creative and social talents. That way, they won’t only reach a good place in society, but will also be ready to contribute to the further development of that society. We invest both in individual talents and in the power of the community.

Where there is a will, there is a way. We hope to support many motivated young people with a strong will. The way, we will build together. The building blocks for this path are: self-confidence, autonomy, self-reliance, competence-building, connection, and continuity. We will provide these people with the building blocks and walk the path with them as long as needed, so that eventually, they will walk out their road themselves.


The goal of Maryosa is to support and advance the development of talent of people in developing countries. With its objectives the organisation aims to serve the public interest.

As stated in article 2, section 1 of the statutes of the organisation, the organisation aims to:

  • support and develop education, in particular in developing countries, among other things by connecting to legal persons and entities with a religious background, and/or by connecting to projects in general, that offer education or the development and improvement of education;
  • support natural persons, in particular in developing countries, by means of, among other things, offering financial support for educational purposes, for example in the form of a scholarship; and
  • perform all further acts that are related to the previous goals in the broadest sense or can be contributory to this.
