Student Street Notes
Welcome to the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam
In our contemporary era, the phrase 'Give a man a fish, and he will be fed for a day; teach him how to fish, and he will be fed for a lifetime' has become cliché. To teach a person to fish in polluted waters and poisoned rivers is challenging when our oceans are governed by human avarice and industrial greed. At the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam, we educate people on why our resources are "polluted" and by whom. When the majority does not have access to resources and the minority continues to exploit what is left behind, it is challenging to educate a person. Here, our students are educated, motivated, and empowered to regain their rights and "fish" in the ocean of justice again. We provide them the tools to recover themselves and their communities from greed and injustice.

Founder & President
At the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam, we aim to provide accessible academic education to individuals who might otherwise struggle to realize their talents and aspirations. The Foundation Academy of Amsterdam is dedicated to offering affordable, and often tuition-free, education to citizens of the Majority World, migrants, refugees, and those facing discrimination based on religion, ideologies, or lifestyle. Our programs center on human rights, global studies, and theology, reflecting our belief that education is an inherent right, as affirmed in Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We invite you to join us on this journey of hope to make the world a better place.
"Access to academic education is a matter of Human Rights!"
