Not only in developing countries, but all over the world children and adolescents live in poverty. According to the Federal Office of Statistics every 6th child in Germany is threatened by poverty.

Poverty is normally accompanied by poor future prospects. This consequently results in little chance of good education, professional fulfilment, social integration or recognition. Therefore poverty leads to more poverty. The Udo Grüninger Foundation’s main aim is to break the vicious cycle of child poverty.

We support children and adolescents in need of help, encouraging projects in the field of education, integration and social skills. Moreover, we assist other providers offering services and conveniences connected to provision of basic supplies, education, training and cultural events for children and youth in need.

You can help and support us too – either as an active member or in form of a donation.
