About us

Heart for Children consists of a team of Evangelical Christian professionals with a zeal to help the most helpless children in our society with what they need most; a solid education.

In Uganda…

In Uganda we have Cor & Grace Koelewijn as leaders of the team. Cor & Grace have a wealth of experience in the field of education and setting up a educational children’s village. They are the pioneers of the Namugongo Children’s Village. From 1988 till 2006 they have build a full primary, secondary and vocational school for orphans. They have given up their comfortable position in Namugongo to start afresh in Tororo.

In The Netherlands…

In the Netherlands we have a support team that is being lead by Marrianne Zeldenrust. Marrianne volunteered to stand by Cor & Grace to raise funds to fulfill the dream that God has given them. Marrianne is helped by Rob Koelewijn and Rina Radema. Furthermore she is assisted by Sipke Zeldenrust as a promoter of this work.

In Germany…

In Germany we have Jakobus Richter as the coordinator of the fundraising effort. Jakobus is the former leader of a Christian Community in Eselsburg. Jakobus has a passion for people! In his effort to support the work of heart for children he is joined by Matthias Weigele. Matthias and his brother Frank are the directors of the EWS Tool Facory in Uhingen. Together with Jakobus, they have decided to support the work of this mission.

And Others…

Besides the above mentioned core members of the support team, we are joined by many who come to volunteer by coming to help and also those who carry us in prayer. Without this prayer support we can do nothing for we do all these things in Jesus Name! Besides this there are other orrganizations that join us in this effort.
