Support Somboon Legacy Foundation
Support Somboon Legacy Foundation is a Dutch foundation established in January 2010. Our goal is to raise funds in order to support the ethical care of Asian elephants. Since 2019, we focus on supporting Somboon Legacy Foundation, located 25 km outside the city of Kanchanaburi in Thailand.
Over the years it became clear to us that a so called sanctuary
is not always a good place for animals. In the last couple of years
it isusually a misused name for places where elephants
are used for tourist entertainment.
As a foundation we cannot support such places.
Therefore together with Agnes and other elephants lovers the idea was born to start a new 100% hands off elephant friendly project in a natural environment that supports not only elephants but also the local community.
We are proud to say that this project, Somboon Legacy Foundation, was launched in march 2019.
As this project follows the principals of our foundation we now fully support Somboon Legacy Foundation in Thailand. As a result we decided to change the name of our foundation to Support Somboon Legacy Foundation.
Support Somboon legacy is a registered foundation under Dutch law (Chamber of commerce register number 01182015)
We are an approved foundation by the Dutch Tax authorities since 2012 as a Public Benefit Organization
