Education

Henner Will Stiftung

Main aim of the charity

The main aim of Henner Will Stiftung is to provide better education chances for disadvantaged children and to contribute to integration of refugee children in Germany. Therefore the foundation implement its own education projects and support projects of other organisations.

How the employee got involved and why

Education is very important in my life. When I was a student, I got a few scholarships for study in Germany. I am very grateful for those chances. Now I want to help other children to get better education chances, expand their horizon, improve their lives and contribute to the society. It was one of the reasons why I co-founded "Henner Will Stiftung" in 2014 and run this organization beside my full-time job at DHL Express.

What work does the employee do for charity

I am chairwoman of a non-profit foundation "Henner Will Stiftung", which implement and support education projects for disadvantaged children and integration of refugee children in Germany. In this role I am responsible for administration, finance, fundraising, communication, network as well as project design and implementation. Together with our volunteers (some of them are colleagues from DPDHL - thank you very much for your great support!) I closely work with children in such projects as the children learning days, excursions and reading lessons for refugee children and career orientation coaching for teenagers.
