Why do we fund?

Children and young people with a refugee or migration background and children and young people from socio-economically weak families are systematically disadvantaged in the education system.
These children and young people should benefit from our support. We want them to develop the skills they need to meet the challenges of our lives. Particularly important to us is the development of language skills, the children's personal development and the accompanying work with parents.
To achieve this, we work together with various partners in the education system - for the greatest possible depth of impact and sustainability!


What do we fund?

We support non-profit organisations that that have the statutory objective of promoting the education and upbringing of children and young people, as well as corporations under public law in the field of education.
Your work should meet the following criteria:


Your work aims at equal access to education and should target the development of language skills, personality development and/or successful parental work.


The target group is children and young people with a refugee and migration background as well as children and young people who are in one or more educationally specific risk situations. Your work should address the children and young people concerned and/or their parents and families.


Your work follows a coherent impact logic and an evaluation of the impact takes place. We would like your work to be aligned with our values: optimism - energy - humanity.


We support organisations throughout Germany.


Applications may be submitted at any time.
