How are the people on the other side of the world doing?

3.4 billion people worldwide live below the poverty line, including 385 million children in extreme poverty. One in five children in developing countries lives in households that have to get by on around 1.90 euros per person per day. Yet the root causes of poverty are not just lack of access to essentials such as water, food, shelter, education or healthcare. Poverty is also caused by injustices such as gender or ethnic discrimination, poor governance, conflict, exploitation and domestic violence.

These disparities

not only lead a person or a society into poverty, but can also limit access to social services that could help people overcome poverty. These causes lead to a cycle of poverty, especially in fragile countries or areas, that needs to be broken.

The INOPIA FOUNDATION takes as its first primary goal,

to fight poverty in all its forms, to help people who have to live in grave conditions around the world. Our vision is to unite people with each other in the fight against poverty, because together we all go further than we ever could alone to make great things happen. We want to invest in and support the lives of people, especially children and youth, because in our eyes they represent the most valuable resource of a society. We are committed to building a healthy environment that they need to thrive and empowers them to create lasting change in their own lives and communities.

"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world."

Education today remains an inaccessible commodity for millions of children around the world. More than 72 million children of primary school age do not attend school. 759 million adults are illiterate and thus lack the necessary understanding to improve both their living conditions and those of their children. This problem can also be applied to highly developed countries such as Germany. Here, studies show that the link between the social status of the family of origin and acquired competencies is still more pronounced than in other countries.

University access also creates new inequalities:

Children from academic families with the same high school graduation grades are more likely to go on to university than children from non-academic homes. In addition, more than 80,000 students leave school without a diploma.

That is why the INOPIA FOUNDATION takes as its goal:

To reduce, as far as possible, the dependence of educational opportunities on the social and financial situation of parents and to create equal conditions for school education. We are committed to supporting, developing and promoting diversity and equality in all academic and non-academic matters and aim to establish an inclusive, non-discriminatory culture based on the values of fairness, dignity and respect.
