What we strive for

The beginnings of our foundation lie in Tanzania. Our projects in Africa’s fifth-largest country are representative of the things the PATRIZIA Children Foundation cares about most: access to education, equal opportunities and a life of self-determination for children and adolescents all over the world. We offer children help so they learn to look after themselves – in the areas that matter most, in the long term, in collaboration with a suitable local partner organisation. Our homes allow us to help as many children as possible to grow up in a safe environment so they can learn or recuperate their strength. Drawing on a wealth of experience in dealing with property allows us to maximise the benefit to those we help. One thing our sponsors can always be sure of: every penny of every donation, big or small, goes towards our projects. It is very easy to support us!

Just some of the things we have already accomplished: facts and figures

Every year, more than 2,000 children – who would otherwise have little prospect of enjoying a life of self-determination – are given the life-changing opportunity to attend one of our schools.
Each year, 20,000 children throughout the world receive essential medical treatment and general healthcare support through our hospitals and nursing homes.

Our children’s homes offer a secure and comfortable place to live to 200 children in need.
More than 200,000 children and adolescents worldwide have gained access to a proper education, offering them every chance to enjoy a better future.

We have been committed to the welfare of children and adolescents worldwide for 20 years. Our experience makes us a partner children can genuinely rely on.
To date, we have built 16 facilities worldwide, including schools, hospitals and children’s homes. We have also succeeded in adding at least one facility every year.

We currently operate in ten countries: Germany, Cameroon, Kenya, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Kenya. India and Bhutan will soon become additions to this list.
