Founder & Director

Doingoood volunteer work was founded in 2010 by Ineke van Huuksloot (1977). Ineke has first visited Kenya in 2005 and fell in love with the African continent. Her passion for Africa and her compassion for children in need made her quit her job and go back to Kenya as a volunteer. Being the first volunteer in a street children’s home and an orphanage, she discovered that there was a great need for more volunteers and more donations. Ineke decided to commit herself to recruit volunteers from The Netherlands for ‘her’ projects in Kenya. In addition she started fundraising and encouraged other volunteers to do so as well as an extra support to the projects. On the many trips that followed in the years after, Ineke met a lot of people who ran projects in need. Due to their request for help, Ineke founded Doingoood in 2010. The objective of Doingoood is to support small scale, African projects with the manpower of volunteers and additional financial or material donations.

Ineke has a professional background in HR and Recruitment and has been working in several commercial management positions since 2001. This experience offered her the perfect basis for starting her own company.

Volunteer coordinator &
Chair lady foundation

Anneke Vermeulen is the chair lady of the foundation. Anneke is responsible for all activities around sponsoring and the wish list of the projects. 
Project partners can provide a ‘wish list’ to Doingoood foundation. A wish list is a list that indicates needs for the project.

We strongly believe in empowerment and self reliance. That is why we invest in income generating activities and we also expect our project partners to think about strategies for the future, to reduce their dependance on donors and to increase their self reliance. We expect our project partners to take the responsibility for taking the steps necessary for improvement and increase of self reliance.

Our Country Coordinators

Doingoood has their own Country Coorinators in Malawi and Uganda. The Country Coordinator is responsible for guiding all volunteers from the moment they arrive at the airport until their departure. The Country Coordinator will receive our volunteers at the airport, goes around with them in town to show them the ATM, the supermarket, important bus stops and teaches them how to use public transport. All volunteers will be comfortably accommodated in our volunteer house.

Our Country Coordinator will visit our volunteers on a weekly basis at their projects, making sure they are comfortable in their volunteering roles. Once a week there is a ‘pizza night’ or a BBQ where the Country Coordinator gathers all volunteers for a fun evening out. Safari’s and weekend trips can also be arranged for through the Country Coordinator. The Country Coordinator is on 24/7 standby in case of any challenges or problems.
