Our Mission

On December 26, 2004, a devastating tsunami hit Asia, causing the death of thousands of people. Amongst them were 12 year-old Jan and his 8 year-old brother Oscar.

In the immediate aftermath of this tragic event, a humanitarian project is born in an outpouring of solidarity.

The Jan & Oscar Foundation was officially founded on June 29, 2005.

Over 50 projects have been implemented in 16 years

The projects are carefully selected according to criteria defined by and with the Board.

Every single franc is used for school construction projects, grants, as well as activities on the ground.
