Buy a plant and support educational projects of the HilverdaFoundation
We are happy to introduce you to the HilverdaFoundation during ‘Kom in de Kas’! The HilverdaFoundation was founded in 2009, in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Hilverda Group. This foundation wants to contribute to the countries in which the group has established its business. Since its establishment, the HilverdaFoundation has entered into several collaborations with local foundations in Kenya and Colombia. Currently, the Foundation is additionally engaged in projects in the Netherlands and India.
All the projects we support to make education possible for underprivileged children who do not (or no longer) have access to (adequate) schooling due to their living conditions. With an appropriate education, they can later not only take good care of themselves but also offer support and help to their loved ones. During ‘Kom in de Kas’ we sell plants, the revenues of which go to the HilverdaFoundation.
