Welcome to the webshop of 'Boeken Steunen Mensen'
Boeken Steunen Mensen was founded in 1987 by Vincentius Association Venlo and the Rotary Club Venlo.
By collecting, assorting and reselling books and various music/media assets, such as vinyl records, CD’s but also DVD’s our foundation managed to collect nearly 1.5 million euro so far with the intention to fund several different projects from numerous countries.
Our foundation’s objective is to collect as many financial means as possible in order to make reinvestments in social projects, focusing primarily on those aiming to strengthen communities in need. Typical investment projects are for example school or sanitation building expenses.
Project selection occurs by our principle:
"Geef ze een hengel en leer ze vissen",
which basically means that those in need are being supported by teaching them how to succeed. Our vision defines our actions.
