Showing solidarity by taking action
War has returned to the heart of Europe. We are horrified and saddened by the events in Ukraine.
The PATRIZIA Foundation has set up a new fund called EduCare Europe. The idea of the fund is to establish a financial framework for providing urgently needed support to children and young people affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
We are currently working flat out to take the initiative to the next level. As a first step, an action plan has been drafted, the aim of which is to provide traumatised children with counselling from trained instructors – and help children find their way back into everyday school life.
The war in Ukraine is causing immense suffering and has enormous repercussions. On the one hand on the people in Ukraine, on the other hand on the poorest of the poor in the developing countries of Africa.
Therefore, we are in close contact with our children’s homes and continuously exchange information with our local partners about the situation on the ground. Because the failure of Ukrainian supplies endangers the food supply of the African population – and with it social peace. This makes it all the more important to give children and young people in the crisis regions a perspective.
Education is everyone’s right.
Every morning when Nima starts her 45-minute walk through the mountains of Nepal to PATRIZIA School Dhoksan, there’s a smile on her face. Nima knows that for her and her family, this is a golden opportunity to break out of the vicious circle of poverty.
Education is the key to a better life, the basis of long-term human development – not only from a political standpoint, but also in social, cultural and economic terms. Education adds value for generations. Nima is just one of a very small number of children who receive the chance to enjoy an education.
Worldwide, more than 258 million children are unable to attend school. Our goal at the PATRIZIA Foundation is to make it possible for children and young adults to receive an education. All over the world. You can also help us achieve this.
Ready for the future
To ensure children even have access to education in times of crisis, an innovative digitalisation project is currently being implemented. This is where our project currently stands in three pilot countries: Cameroon, Nepal and Rwanda. In all three countries we are implementing our ‘ready for the future’ concept. Later on down the line the concept will be used in as many places as possible at PATRIZIA Foundation KinderHaus facilities.
With your support, we can implement all kinds of similar projects and ensure that even more children and young people receive education – at all times.
Of every donated euro goes into our projects. This is because all administrative costs are paid for by PATRIZIA AG.
All projects and partnerships are set up to run for at least 25 years to ensure every invested euro has a lasting impact.
Successful partnerships with local organisations
For over 20 years, the PATRIZIA Foundation has been setting up educational infrastructure where it is needed most. The key expertise of the foundation lies in planning and building schools, shelters and medical facilities. All projects are organised and run in close cooperation with local partners. Every PATRIZIA KinderHaus facility is operated by our partners for at least 25 years. This is because we want to make a difference in the long term and foster the development of independent communities.
This also ensures your donation has an impact today and in the future.
Tales of happiness
The PATRIZIA Foundation has been able to tell many a tale of happy children and young people since it was set up in 1999 – stories about children who received an education thanks to the facilities supported by the foundation, also opening the doors of opportunity to a life of self-determination.
You can also help the PATRIZIA Foundation write more tales of happiness!
You too can write tales of happiness together with the PATRIZIA Foundation!

We’ve been providing PATRIZIA Foundation projects with financial support since 2018. When the foundation told us about the PATRIZIA school in Sondoveni, we knew immediately that we wanted this to become our first CSR project and that we could provide even more specialist input – and give the children in the area an even better opportunity to receive an education.

Raising funds for the PATRIZIA Foundation is the cherry on the cake. It’s what motivated me to take part in the Lake District Challenge.
The #patriziarun was a really impressive demonstration that even from remote locations, we can share the same goals and achieve them.
