Hello, I am happy you are looking at our website! My name is Marion Hasselaar, I am the founder of IBES born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I live in Tanzania, Maji ya Chai since 2010 and I love it here! From profession I am a Social Pedagogue [child & youth worker] and I have a degree in Business. I used to have my own business in the Netherlands for many years.

When I moved to Tanzania, I started working as a director for Happy Watoto Children’s Homes and School, a fast growing organization. We started with 85 children and it was my task to start another home for 100 children and an English medium school for 300 children from the village and from our home. It was a dream job! I started Ibes in 2013 when I saw how youth from children’s homes where not able to find jobs and ended often where they came from.

I wanted to create jobs for them! As I did not want to create competition with local companies, I created jobs, which was not yet in Tanzania. On further analyses of the website, you can see the development of jobs and opportunities I have offered through IBES.

our vision

IBES mission is to create jobs [new jobs for Tanzania]. Without a job youth will not be able to start an independent life on their own.

our vision

We envision a world in which people can take care of themselves and where Orphans and Vulnerable Youth (OVY) get a chance to succeed in life in order to raise their own families!

meet our directors

Marion Hasselaar

I am the Founder and Director of IBES.  While I was working in different Children’s Homes here in Tanzania  I realized that the best way to help the children in the Homes is educating their caregivers, which we do at IBES.

Not only that but many children have to leave their homes when they turn 18 years.  Without relatives, family, land, or home they need an income from day one. We help them by creating new jobs for them.

We thank  God that our  “IBES FAMILY” is growing fast and more and more, orphans and vulnerable youth do find a job within our organization.
