ABOUT US

We are the Stichting Standbeeld Anton de Kom in Den Haag. Our founders are: Dr. Anne Marieke van der Wal-Rémy, Emma Nündel, and Robin Breedeveld.
Dr. van der Wal-Rémy is an assistant professor in history at Leiden University. Emma Nündel is the current President, and Robin Breedeveld is the current
Vice President of the BASIS Africa Committee at Leiden University. Our team consists of more members, including also Nadia Ndiaye, the former President of the BASIS Africa Committee, Makayla Freire, the current Social Media Manager of the committee, and Charlotte Rapp, the current Secretary of the committee. While many of the BASIS Africa Committee Members are engaged in this foundation, these are two separate entities. 

We are based in The Hague, The Netherlands. Our aim is to erect a statue of Anton de Kom in The Hague and raise awareness about his work and activism. Once the statue is set up, we will dissolve the foundation. Our work is voluntary and therefore none of the donations we receive will go to compensating our work, solely to financing the statue.
