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

In 2019, 3,631 children – who would otherwise have little prospect of enjoying a life of self-determination – were given the life-changing opportunity to attend one of our schools.
20,000 children received in 2019 essential medical treatment and general healthcare support through our hospitals and nursing homes.

In 2019, our children’s homes offered a secure and comfortable place to live to 290 children in need.
Since our foundation in 1999, more than 220,000 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 21 years. Our experience makes us a partner children can genuinely rely on.
To date, we have built 17 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 eleven countries: Tanzania, Germany, Rwanda, Uganda, South Africa, Peru, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Nepal and India.
We ensure partnerships with our Children’s Centers last 25 years.

Every euro donated goes 100 % into projects.
