The Freudenberg Foundation was established in Germany in 1984 by members of the Freudenberg family.
The Foundation focuses on the following programme areas:
Firstly, the Foundation promotes the integration of migrants as well as cultural minorities, particularly in the face of the hostility and discrimination with which immigrants may be confronted.
Secondly, the Foundation is involved in helping young people from socially disadvantaged families when they run into difficulties at school and fail to obtain job qualifications.
Thirdly, the Foundation supports the promotion of democratic culture as a fundamental prerequisite for peaceful coexistence in society.
Fourthly, it supports occupational reintegration programmes for people with mental illnesses and projects aiming to increase public awareness of their specific problems.
