Personal Development

We provide vulnerable children the opportunity to gain self-reliability and resilience to build on their own future. Therefore, we offer them a diversity of activities at our Children’s Center through which we intend to let them discover their talents and, at the same time, contribute to a lasting, positive effect on their character development, focusing on their self-esteem and self-efficacy.


Scholarship Program

We currently offer scholarships for selected children of all different school levels. We enable them to continue or gain access to school education by covering their school fees, school materials and health insurance. To follow up and advise on their individual educational situations, Root Foundation visits students regularly at their schools. Sometimes, we also offer subject-specific coaching.


Parent’s Program

We involve children’s direct environment into our work: their families. Root Foundation’s volunteers regularly visit affected families, listen to their stories and offer them counselling. We invite all parents for monthly fellowship meetings to engage, support and advise them in their efforts to manage their children’s education. Through the mothers’ cooperative, we have an impact on the income mothers make.
