Mr Bert Koijmans

Mr Bert Koijmans from The Hague is our most special sponsor. He included our foundation in his will in 2013. He wanted his legacy to contribute to the development of higher education in Indonesia, the country where he was born. The Heliconia Scholarship Foundation is the only foundation in the Netherlands that focuses exclusively on university education, so we were lucky to find each other! After a wonderful first meeting, the choice was quickly made. Over the years, our board members have regularly visited Mr Koijmans and maintained good contact with his business representative. On October 13, 2015, just after his 90th birthday, Mr Koijmans passed away. We are very grateful for Mr Koijmans' special gift to us. Thanks to him we have a strong financial foundation and are able to offer many youngsters the opportunity to study at university!

Website technical support by Melanze Web Design & Web Development by Patty Brummelman.

Operational manager Carli Kooper:
The Heliconia Scholarship Foundation, for Higher Education in Indonesia, got a new, multilingual website in 2020. Patty Brummelman from Melanze has helped us in that proces. She clearly has a lot of technical knowledge, which is exactly what I miss myself. She is always easy to contact, responds quickly to questions and knows how to locate and solve technical problems swiftly. She assisted me in exactly the areas where I needed her support. With some issues, she pointed me in the right direction, without charging extra costs, enabling me to solve a problem myself. As a result, I also learned a lot! Thank you Patty, thanks to our new website we are ready to carry our mission far into the future. I would love to make use of your services again!
