An opportunity for young people to secure safe and sustainable futures
The Ten Foundation was founded in 1997 by Robi Valkhoff and Saskia Helbach to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their company CAOS, Conference Organisers. Instead of gifts they asked for donations allowing them to start the foundation. In the past 20 years the foundation managed to initiate, support and complete a large number of projects.
The foundation’s first project was the start and completion of a children’s orphanage in Karoi, Zimbabwe. To this day, the foundation still supports this home but has also broadened its ambition: That is, to initiate and support projects that enable young adults to have a solid and stable future by focusing on health, education, social interaction and being valuable members of society, for example through the development of job opportunities.
