Who we are - our objectives

Introduction
 
The LindA Foundation is a christian, non-profit, charity organization with the aim of improving the living conditions of orphaned children in Northern Uganda. Thousands of children there have lost their parents as a result of the rebel war, AIDS and other diseases.

'LindA' means 'Light in dynamic Africa'.

We are a small, transparent organization with more than 15 years of experience in Uganda. 
The foundation was founded by Mrs Jozina van Eerdenburg, a Dutch lady, who - during a visit to Uganda in 1998 - was touched by the Lord to take care of the orphans she found there in their desperate situation. 

Mrs. Jozina van Eerdenburg remains several periods of the year in Uganda to monitor the projects and the team of local employees. 


The main activity of The LindA Foundation is giving care and education to abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable children. They are a large group in a desperate situation, often traumatized by what they have witnessed.

The supporting parties of the LindA Foundation include the following:
The LindA Project The Netherlands;
The LindA Project UK (known as "The Light in dynamic Africa (LINDA) trust").
