“True to our motto Building a Future Together, we campaign worldwide as part of our goal of offering children and adolescents a better life through education.”

Wolfgang Egger, initiator of the PATRIZIA Children Foundation

Our vision  and mission

Children need an education in order to determine their own future. Our goal is a world in which all children have equal opportunities.

We help as many children as possible around the world. More than 200,000 children and adolescents worldwide have already gained access to education, a home, or medical care in our facilities.

We believe that education is the way to a better future. That is why we build schools and children’s homes – to provide access to quality education. It is important to us to help people to help themselves. Through our projects, we strengthen children’s and adolescents’ ability to identify with and take pride in their own sense of responsibility, even if they have suffered tragedy.

We collect money for schools, children’s homes and hospitals. Our donors, particularly members of the Sponsor Circle, help promote humanity and we use their donations sensibly. All of our administrative expenses are covered by PATRIZIA AG. In this way, we ensure that all donations go 100% into projects.
