Our Mission

Children are the foundation of our world. According to a well-known Indian proverb, “we have not inherited the earth from our ancestors, we have borrowed it from our children.” Children are the future of our society. Everything that we give to our children and everything that we invest in their development and education for peaceful coexistence in a culturally diverse society can and will always contribute to making our planet a better place to live in the future.

Therefore, the SARIAS Foundation would like to dedicate the core area of its work to children especially. Our focus is on teaching children the importance of universal values such as love, respect, appreciation, and tolerance, and making these human values tangible for them in everyday life. Through the transmission of such elementary, universal values, children are able to learn from an early stage of their development that the things that connect people are always stronger than those that divide them.


Our Values

The SARIAS Foundation would like to support the education and upbringing of children, as well as their cultural and social development. Our goal is to contribute to a positive future by teaching children universal values and their significance.


These are projects we stand for


Get and stay mobile together

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 65 million people worldwide require a wheelchair. 20 million affected people, 25% of whom are children, do not receive this aid. The SARIAS foundation seeks to aid those in need.


“Tell me a story!”

Fairy tales are stories that encourage and convey values. They offer possible solutions for conflict situations and children identify with the fairy tale heroes. We want to use fairy tales as a means to raise children in a culturally sensitive manner.
