Maarten OlthofFounder Patron
"I am ecologist, teacher and enterpreneur. With my Vajra Foundation I have built 9 schools in Nepal. Our dream project is the Vajra Academy, the First Green and Eco-Friendly school in Nepal. This school is delivering high skilled gradualted with a social attitude and awareness about the challenges of our time. Exactly the graduates the 21st century needs! That’s why the Vajra Academy is internationally recognised as the only Changemaker School in Nepal (out of 300 globally). My foundation has done many other projects in Nepal, like building a hospital, health posts, drinking water facilities and treating tens of thousand patients in health camps. We have also realised the biggest solar cooking project in the world in eastern Nepal. For these activities I have received a High Royal Decoration from the Dutch King. We make a difference."
