Our Moustaqbel Foundations
We operate through two foundations, one in Amsterdam (stichting), and one in Marrakech (association), legal entities under Dutch and Moroccan law respectively. This legal structure is necessary for both practical and legal reasons. It is also a stimulus for our strong roots in Moroccan society. Both foundations have the Dutch “ANBI” status.

As a Dutch non-profit organisation, Moustaqbel is supervised by a board, which serves on a voluntary basis.

A gifted student home
Dar Moustaqbel does not pay rent. The historic 18th century property – newly renovated and ready to use – has been made available long term by the owners at no cost to the Moustaqbel Foundations. Solar panels provide the building with its own hot water supply. This investment and all fixed furnishings were a donation from the owners of the building. Costs involved in reparations and renovations are also carried by the owners. The running costs of the Moustaqbel Foundation consist of food, activities, professional support for our students by our team and teachers, energy and internet.
Fundraising has the highest priority. We are on a continuous search for sponsoring, donations, gifts, subsidies and private funds. In order to raise money, the Moustaqbel Foundation adopts a dynamic approach, earning funds in its Amsterdam outpost and involving a diversity of private donors, companies, schools and (non-governmental) organisations.
Both Moustaqbel Foundations are in compliance with Dutch tax authorities. This makes it possible for sponsors to deduct their donations fiscally in case of a five year commitment.
Donations are spent completely on the running costs of the project and in accordance with the statutes of the Moustaqbel Foundation. We would like to underline that all board members, both in the Netherlands and in Morocco, dedicate their time on a voluntary basis and do not receive any remuneration or reimbursement of travel costs.

The AKBHHH, founded in 2006, strives to humbly contribute to the greater whole. Hence the name Alle Kleine Beetjes Helpen, meaning every little bit helps in Dutch.
AKBHHH is a small foundation based on enormous enthusiasm. It supports projects focused on nature & climate, education, development and health care, both in the Netherlands and beyond.
Small scale, quick and flexible are the key factors for its success. AKBHHH is highly effective in its decision making and has ample experience identifying small and personal initiatives that matter greatly.
The R.C. Maagdenhuis Foundation supports social projects aiming at activation of (vulnerable) youth and elderly. The foundation stems from the catholic orphanage for girls that was located on the Spui in Amsterdam until 1953.
The Maagdenhuis started exploring needs and possibilities in Morocco in 2016, and has since enlarged its operating range to Morocco.
The Maagdenhuis reserves its support for small-sized projects, initiated and carried by the local population. The main emphasis is on care for the elderly, children with disabilities, and education for girls from rural areas.
