Foundation Tur Mucha Mester Kome

The TMMK program is providing food for children in need year-round: 3 meals per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year (at school, but also at home during weekends and vacations). The private sector, the government and citizens are contributing so that we can provide nutritious and tasty food to children that do not receive sufficient food at home, for whatever reason. At the same time social workers are helping to assess the causes, so we can work on more structural solutions in the long run.

It will take us some time before we can help all children that need help, but each child we feed is one more child that has a better chance to complete his/her education successfully, and to have a better perspective in life. Our program does not only help children eat well every day; it helps them to concentrate better in class and to enjoy and benefit from their education; it helps them care for one another and for themselves by feeling cared for; it will eventually help them to plant their own food and to become self-sustaining. Our program seeks to empower children that have a bad start in life.

Poverty is a problem of us ALL, and a program of inclusion will help us ALL; we make up our society TOGETHER!

We THANK all private and governmental organizations that are contributing, all charities that are donating funds, all private donors in Holland and Curaçao, and each one of you that has contributed in one way or another. We also THANK the “pilot schools” for their cooperation; as well as all drivers, cooks, website builders, auditors and volunteers that are helping TMMK.

Team TMMK is thankful and proud of you for helping the children in Curaçao that need your help most.

They wait for your help
