What would the Foundation like to achieve?
The “Umbrella Kids” Foundation was established in 2016 in Central Switzerland to improve access to education for ambitious young people from low-income background, especially from developing countries.
Increasing their chance of education will give them the opportunity of a better perspective in life and to contribute to the economic development of their country.
What Are we Doing?
In the first phase of the programme, the Foundation aims to award scholarships in Myanmar to support young people with the funding of a college education helping them play their role in the further development of their home country.
The aim is to extend the scholarship programme to other countries, especially in Asia.
