About Pfrang Association
Who we are
We are a group of people who are united in the belief that education is one of the most basic and valuable assets in our society and therefore should be accessible to all young people. We have made it our aim to extend this gift of education to as many children as possible who would otherwise not be afforded the opportunity.
Why we are
In April 2000 the Pfrang family lost their lives in a dreadful crime in their home in Nanjing. From sorrow for Sandra, Thorsten, Petra and Jürgen Pfrang, the desire arose to keep the memory of the family alive through making a positive contribution to the society we choose to live and work in. The foundation acknowledges the fact that social inequality and poor education prepare the grounds for crimes.
How we are organized
The Pfrang Association is a nonprofit charity organization with the intention of providing funds aimed at helping underprivileged children in Jiangsu Province to attain an education.
In setting up the Association, we have developed a partnership with Amity Foundation (www.amityfoundation.org). This foundation has years of experience dealing with the needs of young people in China, and aspires to achieve similar goals as the Pfrang Association.
The Pfrang Association is administered entirely through a group of volunteers and governed by the Articles of the Association.
Our mission is to raise funds to sponsor the high school education of underprivileged children in Jiangsu province.
We believe this sponsorship provides students with the chance to lead a self-directed and fulfilled life.
