In Southeast Asia, upgrowing children generally have not as good opportunities as in the Netherlands.
From a personal involvement with people who live in this region of the world, the desire has grown to help underprivileged children and adolescents in this region to improve their situation.
The name of the foundation, 'Aroon', is the Thai word for dawn/rising sun. Because of the improved situation of the children and adolescents, the hope of a better future appears on the horizon: for themselves, their families and their country. 'Stichting Aroon' operates from a Christian perspective.
