Agapedia was founded by Jürgen Klinsmann in 1995 and develops projects that support children in need. Our work focuses on advising, planning, organizing, and completing humanitarian projects. The goal of all our initiatives is to help affected children and anyone in need directly and to strengthen societal development through sustainable projects.
Agapedia is a registered foundation in five countries, where our teams help others. The foundation’s administrative costs are borne by Agapedia’s founding members and the returns of Jürgen Klinsmann’sendowment fund.
Agapedia teams are involved as independent foundations in five countries, according to the respective state’s law. We lend support in: Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Georgia. One key focus of Agapedia is its work in the poorest transformation countries in Southeast Europe. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, these countries have struggled to build up social structures and introduce European standards in social work.
