At the UBS Optimus Foundation, we believe that every child deserves to have the best possible start in life. Your kindness could help fund vital interventions to give children across the world the chance to enjoy a peaceful, safe and happy childhood.. Additionally, all donations this year will be co-funded1 by the UBS Optimus Foundation pound for pound.
Your philanthropy can help children in three vital ways:
Recovery from crisis
Poverty, disease and conflict threaten children’s safety and well-being. Your philanthropic investment could help children to recover in the wake of a crisis, giving them a chance get their lives back on track.
Freedom from exploitation
Across the world, many children are forced to take on gruelling labour, often in cramped, unsafe and unsanitary conditions. You could help liberate them from the grips of bonded labour.
Access to education
Abuse, family matters and mental illness prevent children from making the most of their education, which can have a knock-on effect throughout their lives. Your generosity could help address these issues as early as possible, giving children the capacity to reach their full potential.
