The Hague Business Agency (THBA) and the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) both supported Kumbaya’s investment in the Netherlands. Following a meeting with THBA, Kumbaya was introduced to the opportunities and environment that The Hague presents to companies that strive to make a global social impact.
“There are several factors that played a key role in our choice for establishing our European head-office in The Hague. The ImpactCity program of The Hague includes a highly relevant network of humanitarian and like-minded organizations, a friendly business environment, people and events.

I am sure Kumbaya has chosen the perfect ecosystem for their next step.”, says Deputy Mayor of the City of The Hague, Saskia Bruines.
