The Hempel Foundation

The Hempel Foundation

In 1948, JC Hempel established The Hempel Foundation, a commercial foundation and owner of the Hempel Group. 

Whilst the Foundation’s primary purpose is to provide and maintain a solid economic base for the Hempel Group, its secondary purpose is to provide assistance for cultural, social, humanitarian, scientific and artistic purposes. 

With a special focus on education for children in need, the Foundation supports education across the four areas of:

  • Building new schools
  • Helping child labourers to leave work and pursue an education
  • Improving local schools
  • Developing and running after school education clubs

Today the Hempel Foundation supports the education of over 55,000 children across 22 projects worldwide.
