Stichting iBelieve international is a not-for-profit organisation, with headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We are dedicated to improving the living condition of children in underprivileged communities; irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, religion or status.
Our Mission is . . . doing the right thing for the "good of all."
We believe that "every child deserves a future."
A good future starts with a good education, therefore, good education should never depend on a child’s ability to afford it.
Our Vision is to have seven million underprivileged children educated and empowered with essential 21st century skills: STEM+CODE+Bilingual Skills by 2029.
The best gift for a child is education. by Ben De Wittman, Co-founder & Chairman.

The iBelieve Centres will develop children’s bilingual, computational and critical thinking skills, and show them how to create, not simply use, new technologies. This fundamental knowledge is needed to prepare them for the 21st century.
The iBelieve Bracelet is a custom made wristband, embosed with the iBelieve logo (the heart of love and the hands of giving). A show of support and affirmation of the believe that "every child deserves a future." Still available. Get yours now!
All funds from the iBelieve international's non-profit accommodation goes to the funding of the iBelieve Centres. Accommodation is open to everyone, but volunteer workers get the best deal as they can apply for a discount.
Funding from the founders cover much but not all of the needed organizations’s operations. We welcome all acts of generosity from kindhearted individuals, companies and organizations alike who believe that "every child deserves a furture" -- irrespective of family background or gender.

Stichting iBelieve international is founded and primarily financed by De Wittman family.
De Wittman family believes that education-oriented solutions are key to
positive changes and that the future depends on our ability to educate the children
in the disciplines where jobs are available and where economic growth is feasible.
From different schools, with different backgrounds, gender and future ambitions, these children have one thing in common; to acquire essential 21st century skills.
I am six years old. I am not sure what I will be when I grow up. Now I am learnig English & French in iBelieve Centre. I want to learn how to make computers too.
I am a young girl with a big dream to be a pilot. I am happy to be here because they show us that “anything is possible if we believe and learn the right skills”.
I want to be a nurse for my community. But sometimes travel to help in countries far far away. Bilingual skills will open doors and help me understand other cultures.
I love innovative technology; the phones, the computers, and the games that come with it. I want to be a programmer and maybe work for national security.
I am multilingual because of my family background. I am also in an international school. At iBelieve Centre I am learning how to read and write code. It is fun.
I want to be the President of my country when I grow up. I don’t know about politics but I want to learn better, create better and innovate better.
