Hearts4Change: Education that comes from the heart

With Hearts4Change, we have created an extraordinary campaign with the help of which we want to open up access to education, health care and welfare for a total of one million children by 2030. Having already reached our first milestone of 600,000 children, the proceeds from the campaign will go towards realising this ambitious vision.

Through your support of Hearts4Change, you are a true “person of the heart” for us. Your donation, regardless of the amount, symbolises your commitment to the future of children and our special initiative.

Our heart project in India

The majority of the donations will go to a new lighthouse project in India, the PATRIZIA School in Muniguda. A total of 25% of the people living in Muniguda and the surrounding area cannot read or write. In order to increase the literacy rate of the communities, the school is to be expanded with two new school buildings with a total of 14 new classrooms.

Together with further training for the teaching staff, this enables us to provide quality education in the 25 villages of the region. The model school is the first local school with a holistic concept that goes beyond basic education. With its expansion, digitalised teaching can take place, offering new perspectives for entering the labour market and thus a life outside traditional structures.

This holistic education creates an alternative to early marriage and child marriages, especially for girls. The young people no longer have to drop out of school to support themselves and their families financially.

“Education is, for me, the key to a successful life. And that goes for everyone: Because education is a lifelong process that doesn’t end with graduation but continues into old age.”

“For me, education is a way to make the world a fairer place. I was taught this principle from an early age. A good education opens up opportunities to shape one’s own life. With better access to education, we move closer to the goal of providing equal opportunities for everyone.”

For me, education means personal and professional growth that allows us to expand our horizons and discover new perspectives. Education is very important because it is the basis for innovation and progress in our society. It empowers people to make informed decisions. And it is the basis and foundation that strengthens cohesion and understanding in our community.

“Education is more than just learning to count, write and read. Education is the fundamental to understand the world, but also the ability to navigate in it. Education is more than just knowledge; it is also about developing problem-solving skills, encouraging critical thinking and, of course, building self-confidence. Why are these things so important? Because they are the essential elements that enable us humans to turn our future dreams and career desires into reality. That is why education must be easily accessible for everyone. Education ultimately serves to establish social justice.”
