Main focus of our work

In their work the Schmitz Foundations focus their support mainly on the following three major sectors of development work :

  • Basic education and training
    (principally in manual trades and job training)

  • Securing basic living standards promoting small-scale commercial activity
    (examples: micro-credits schemes, including agriculture and food security

  • Social and charitable projects
    (examples: work with the handicapped, care for the elderly, rehabilitation of street children or support for disadvantaged minorities)
