The Wakka Foundation was established on 10 May 2017. The Wakka project has been around since 2009 and was part of the Dordrecht-Bamenda Foundation (Stedenband). After a change of board, it was decided that the Wakka project would be better reflected as a separate foundation.
The Wakka Foundation has received the ANBI accreditation.
Policy and strategy
The Wakka Foundation Foundation aims to support mothers with children or young people with disabilities in various ways. In 2009, a plan was made to set up a home, also an advice and training center for children with multiple restrictions. Due to various circumstances, including a dispute about the ownership of the land and problems with the exploitation, the building is only three-quarters off. As the land problem is soon resolved, the Wakka Foundation Foundation intends to finish the building. The Traditional Council of Bali-Njonga is now looking for a purposeful destination in the form of an independent NGO.
The Foundation Wakka Foundation also supports a non-profit NGO named MOGGA, which was founded in 2015 by mothers with multiple children in Bamenda and Bali-Njonga. The aim of this group is to assist each other and to promote the welfare of these children. These mothers are only there because in almost all cases the father withdraws.
