Building better futures.

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.

Showing solidarity by taking action

With the launch of the EduCare Europe Fund, the PATRIZIA Foundation reacted in a very short time after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine to acute resulting issues such as homelessness, displacement, traumatisation and the complete loss of any educational opportunities for children and young people. The aim of the EduCare Europe Fund is to support these children from Ukraine – through Education & Care. The fund finances trained emergency educators. They help traumatised children and ease their way back into everyday school life.

Your company for education worldwide

Together with small and large partners from the business world, we implement exciting educational projects around the world and give local people the basis for a self-determined life. Let’s work together to create educational infrastructures where they are needed most.

With its Kinderhaus facilities, the PATRIZIA Foundation offers companies various opportunities to implement comprehensive CSR strategies. We would be happy to work with you to find a project that suits your company.

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!

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.

When this war broke out, it was clear to me that #patriziaride 2022 must raise money to alleviate the suffering of the Ukrainian people. Especially the children need our support now.
