Siemens Stiftung operates in the fields of basic services, education, and culture. As a hands-on foundation, we develop our own projects and implement them with a view to the long term. Together with our partners, we aim to help people improve their living conditions. By doing so, we try to empower functioning communities in which people can have a good life. We are committed to international, impact-oriented, and transparent project work. The geographical focus of our work is on regions in Africa and Latin America as well as Germany and other European countries. In its working area Education, Siemens Stiftung promotes science and technology education along the entire educational chain. The foundation offers educators training and continuing educational opportunities and provides instructions and experimentation materials which give impulses for lessons that arouse the student’s curiosity and stimulate their autonomous thinking. Knowledge of natural sciences and technical interrelationships, we believe, is an important basis to be able to seize the opportunities of a technological world in a responsible way.
