The Foundation Who we are and what we do

The Hedwig and Robert Samuel Foundation was established in 1932 by the merchant couple from Düsseldorf of the same name. It is a non-profit foundation under private law which focuses on supporting economically disadvantaged young people in the area of technical education. 

Hedwig and Robert Samuel Foundation

Focus on education and technical training

Our foundation is an operating foundation. Since 1993, we have been focusing primarily on developing our own aid projects in the field of education and technical training and have been mainly working in Central America and Asia. In addition, we cooperate with other aid organisations in Germany and abroad.

Achieve more with cooperation

When implementing our educational programmes, cooperation with companies plays a major role. These cooperations help us bring the technical education to a level that meets the modern working world and its requirements.
