All over the world, Wilde Ganzen (Wild Geese Foundation) supports people in developing countries in their efforts to achieve a better future for their community. Our support is aimed at tangible, small-scale projects for and by the people themselves, without discrimination concerning race, language, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
Wilde Ganzen was established in 1957. Development and cooperation, is what Wilde Ganzen has always been about. We have been working for almost 60 years with dedication and determination, because the prevailing inequality in the world is something we wish to change.
The detailed planning of a project is the task of the Project Owners. The project owner, a local (development) organisation, is also responsible for the implementation of the project. The project owner works in close cooperation with their partner in the Netherlands, who raises a considerable part of the funds for the project.
Wilde Ganzen welcomes new partnerships. But Please note: You may submit a project proposal only if you are connected to a Dutch partner organisation that is willing to raise funds for your project.
Wilde Ganzen runs a number of programmes that stem from projects and satisfy the needs of private initiatives and/or grassroots organisations. The programmes relate to current issues. In addition, they establish Wilde Ganzen as a leader in sustainability and places the responsibility for poverty alleviation where it belongs: not just with impoverished people, but also with the governments, businesses, and middle class in developing countries.
Change the Game Academy aims at strengthening the capacity of Community Based Organisations and non governmental organisations all over the world, but especially in low and middle income countries, to raise funds locally and to mobilise other kinds of support.
