Sofronie Foundation

Stepping in; for young people that need a step up

Sofronie Foundation was established January 2007 with the aim of making a difference to young people’s lives and has historically funded projects all over the world.

In recent times, the Foundation has centred more focus on tackling disadvantage and improving social mobility closer to home and funds educational initiatives and aspirational programmes in France, the Netherlands and the UK.

Sofronie's main goal is to help young people by offering them the opportunities with which they can improve their employment chances – benefitting both their own lives and the lives of their future families.

By addressing the issues that hold young people back from accessing opportunities, Sofronie Foundation hopes to provide a stepping-stone to future employment and life success.
