Graf von Faber-Castell Children´s Foundation


Commitment to the Children of the World

In many regions of the world, children suffer the most from the consequences of war, hunger, sickness, and the unfavorable circumstances  in which they were born. Whether it is children living on the streets in Latin America, needy children in the workhouses in India, or disadvantaged children in our own neighborhoods - they all have little chance to improve their living conditions by themselves.

The Graf von Faber-Castell Children´s Foundation has made a commitment to help. Through its activities in various humanitarian aid projects, we want to give as many children as possible a fair chance for the future - even with relatively limited means.

With the help of our colleagues, I will personally ensure that all donations will fully go toward providing rapid, traceable, and concrete assistance to these children.


Sincerely yours,
