Marc de Kloe, Co-founder of A4C and partner of Theta Capital Management: “We are very grateful to have two new dynamic and highly motivated Directors: their energy will with no doubt contribute to A4C’s impactful future. We also take the opportunity to thank our former Board as well as all the volunteers that have helped through the years!”
Marjolijn: “I am very pleased to formally join the Board of A4C. As I have learned in the past couple years A4C is a great charity, well-run by a passionate and dedicated group of volunteers and founders. We have a great opportunity to further develop our support for fantastic projects with a very tangible impact on children in less developed regions of the world. I am looking forward to continuing to work with our great team and projects.”
Peter: “I have been attending A4C events since its launch in 2011, and was always impressed by the dedication of its volunteers. Early last year the time had come to join A4C as an active volunteer, an experience I can highly recommend. This pleasant cooperation now resulted in a board position. Together with the whole A4C team, I am very motivated to support the goals of this wonderful charity, focused on providing children access to (better) education.”
