Aartsenfruit Kids Foundation
AKF was founded to celebrate the 100th anniversary of aartsenfruit, a fruit and vegetable import company. Jack and Hellen Aartsen established the foundation in 2007 to be able to make a vital contribution to the happiness and well-being of children. Children have a right to love, security, good personal development and a healthy future. Something which not every child is fortunate enough to experience.
AKF consists of an executive board and various volunteers, including aartsenfruit employees. Together they work closely each day on the various AKF projects and activities.
