The Henk Vos Foundation:
The Henk Vos Foundation was established on July 7, 1992 with the aim to promote tourism in Suriname in the broadest sense of the word.
The Foundation capital was raised by four companies in which Mr. Henk Vos was involved as a member of the Supervisory Board, namely Torarica, Assuria, CIC and Cultuurmaatschappij Ma Retraite.
Since the Foundation has been inactive for years, the board has decided to revive the Foundation and allow it to function as the Community Fund of the Torarica Group (which has been the largest contributor to the Foundation's wealth). This is also to give substance to the corporate social responsibility of the Torarica Group, whereby the objectives of the fund essentially correspond to the original objectives of the Foundation.
Former projects of the Henk Vos Foundation:
- Rehabilitation Palm Garden
- Project Joden Savanne – renovation of the jetty and walkway
- Project embellishment of Someldsijckstraat
- Project renovation wedding hall Combé . Commissariat
- Donation Folk Music School
The new board took office on January 19, 2021. The articles of association and name change were signed on May 12, 2021.
