Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The Maurits van Nierop Foundation is a non-profit organization with the goal of supporting underprivileged children in developing countries.


Children have a right to play sports. This has been settled in the Treaty for the rights of the child of the United Nations. Sports are an important part in the development for each child. They gain more confidence, meet other children, exercise more, learn how to handle rules and discipline and have to deal with winning and losing. Above all, sports are fun and good for you. Special attention will go to the children of the Khayelitsha Township in Cape Town.
