Visions without actions remain dreams – an information event for and with primary schoolers

Another milestone was reached on 17 April 2018: the Ralf Rangnick Foundation hosted an information event. Representatives of all Leipzig primary schools were invited. One thing has become certain in the interim: for the time being, the Ralf Rangnick Foundation will be focusing on Leipzig’s primary schools.

 

In order to achieve our goal, we need a defined sponsor group. Only then can the education situation of schools in relevant areas be significantly improved. Primary schools are of particular interest. Because it’s here that there’s the greatest chance of reaching the most children possible, regardless of their financial, cultural, social and religious backgrounds. The selection channels are simply the lowest here. Ralf Rangnick, Founder and Chair of the Board of Directors, explains the process. Under the motto “visions without actions remain dreams”, the foundation introduced itself to about 40 primary schools, and discussed together with those present how education can be successfully improved in the Leipzig primary school area.

We aim to generate offers and achieve defined targets. However, we also want to work together with the schools. Too often offers are directed towards schools without precisely asking about the requirements and needs on location. We want to change that, says Philipp Streit, foundation spokesperson. And more: We have been able to get a deeper insight, which we will now be discussing to develop a productive and sustainable support concept.

In the coming weeks and months, the Ralf Rangnick Foundation will continue to expand its structures and formulate strategic goals. So stay tuned for more information regarding our foundation's profile.
