Great news: Meet Kate UK!

We have great news! Proudly we present to you... Meet Kate UK!

Below you can read Myrthe's story about how she and Naa (President Meet Kate UK) met and how our little UK sister came to be!

Check out our extra newsletter and read Naa's story and vision on Ghana and Meet Kate.

In 2006 the Meet Kate Foundation was established in the Netherlands. Since then, we have been growing. Expanding in our projects; increasing the number of people who benefit from our work and snowballing in spreading our message. Through online platforms such as Facebook and Global Giving, we are getting more and more international friends and followers.

In 2011, I was volunteering in Ghana, and in my first weeks I shared my host family with another volunteer called Naa; a British girl born in Ghana and with whom I immediately felt a great connection to. Although we only knew each other for a couple of weeks before she flew back home, we stayed in touch, and last summer Naa visited me in Amsterdam. Naa, Kelly and I share the same great ambition and enthusiasm in showing the potential in Africa, and now we unite in one mission: Meet Kate!

So how does it all work? Meet Kate Foundation UK was established in November 2012 and is the sister charity of Meet Kate Foundation in the Netherlands. Its aim is to raise awareness and money for projects that Meet Kate Foundation Ghana undertakes. While doing that, we will show people the positive side of Africa.

Though Meet Kate UK has their own seperate board, Meet Kate’s core values are still the same: we still believe that there is more to Africa than just poverty; we still start each project with the aim of leaving them self-reliant; we still work and co-operate with the local people on meaningful small scale projects; and we still believe in keeping everything 100% transparent. The only difference? Now we can reach more people, and people in England can hear about and get involved with us more easily.

Kind regards,

Myrthe Oostenbach
President Meet Kate Foundation the Netherlands
