Our Story

Education as the key to a sustainable future

A foundation founded in 1996 by Mrs. Edith Strauss-Marsera (former Minister for Development Cooperation), Mr. Boi Antoin (Historian and journalist) and Mr. Evert Piar (former banker), three concerned citizens that believed in preserving important cultural heritage of Bonaire and use it to educate the future generations on the traditional way of life on Bonaire.

Today, Mangazina Di Rei has become a learning center containing vast knowledge on Bonairean history and way of life. We achieved this by listening, learning and translating the knowledge of our elders into a cultural heritage treasure. A wealth of knowledge we proudly make accessible to the local community and tourists alike.
