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.
