The foundation is registered with the Chamber of Commerce The Hague, number 28116157. The Java Village Foundation has been acknowledged as Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, ANBI (institution serving public interest) by the Dutch tax authorities.
Java Village started off as a private effort by its founders. The past years since its official foundation, Java Village has laid down the groundwork for the implementation of its activities. This is something which both the board and its volunteers have worked hard on. The initial emergency assistance, has now been replaced by a focus on capacity building, self-reliance and transparency.
