On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the ten-hour Run for Children on 13 June 2015 we are happy to announce that we sponsor Masifunde Bildungsförderung e.V..
Run for Children was founded as an initiative by the German company SCHOTT AG in cooperation with the paediatric-neurological centre of the state Rheinland-Pfalz, the Mainz university paediatrical hospital and the TSV SCHOTT (sports club).
The proceeds will be credited to regional children‘s charity organisations in Mainz which support ill, disabled and deprived children (for more information: http://www.runforchildren-mainz.de/).
Masifunde Bildungsförderung e.V. is a young non-profit organisation based in Walmer Township, Port Elizabeth, South Africa and implements educational programs for children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, thus providing them with new perspectives for their future. Masifunde Bildungsförderung e.V. was founded in 2004 by students from Mainz and is nowadays working throughout Germany as well as South Africa.
Utilizing educational training programs, such as the varied „Learn4Life!“ program and sponsorships, Masifunde contributes to development cooperation and assures a sustainable and holistic approach.
