The foundation is briefly responsible for, among other things, the village of Palumeu on the Tapanahoni river in the south of Suriname, here live the Wajana & Trio indigenous tribe that thanks to the dedication of the foundation.
Help Bosland residents Surinam & travel organization Mets travel (who have built a small jungle lodge in which the residents work so earn some money) are helped in various ways that improve their living conditions and that fit with a time in which they now live.
Mets is co-sponsor of the dam, for example, by providing accommodation, sleeping places and food for the various workmen of the dam that have flown in.
Education is also an important factor in the support of the village, which is being developed here together with the Ministry of Education and Popular Development (Minov). This at the request of the population.
The foundation is assisted in this endeavor by a Board of Supervision of which the captain of the village is the chairman. Arnout van de Werken, Eddy Wong Chung and Armand Bhagwandas (director Mets) are supervisory directors of this board, Ted Jentz (owner Mediavision Suriname) is the secretary. The council has a strictly advisory role and also seeks to generate additional financial resources for the Tukui Palumeu Foundation.
The main goal of our campaign is to provide the village with electricity as the first by repairing the already realized dam and its cabling to the village.
