Fondation Rolf Schnyder

Fondation Rolf Schnyder is a philanthropic organization founded in Switzerland in 2012 with the goal of helping those in need, especially children. We were established to fulfil the wish of Rolf W Schnyder, the late husband of our founder, to make the world a better place.

Established as a tax-exempt organisation under Swiss law in 2012 as Fondation Rolf Schnyder – Ulysse Nardin, we changed our name to Fondation Rolf Schnyder in 2014.

We have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to philanthropy, engaging in a wide range of impactful projects around the world. From micro-financing to improving sanitation in schools, sponsoring activities for children with special needs, and providing essential nutritional needs for vulnerable populations, our initiatives have brought about tangible, positive change. We have also contributed to the construction of schools and funding of aquaponics projects, among other endeavors.

Our integrative proactive child protection programs further underscore our dedication to making a meaningful difference in the communities we serve. With a focus on empowering those in need, our foundation remains steadfast in our mission to effect lasting change.

We are now putting our main focus on Digital Literacy for children as this is a crucial skill for most future jobs, brightening up their future.

Our founder, Datin Chai Schnyder, knows that there are many challenges and problems in the world, and that it can be difficult to know how to make a difference. However, she has learned that every effort counts and that following her heart can lead to meaningful encounters with hardworking people who are dedicated to helping those in need. She believes that education is key to helping people understand that there is a bright future ahead and to make the right choices for themselves and the world. Through the initiatives of Fondation Rolf Schnyder, she hopes to give as many people as possible the chance to learn, to hope, and to be happy.

Our Impact

We are grateful for Persatuan Kebajikan Rolf Schnyder’s KIDS: Bits & Bytes Foundational Coding Program for pre-schools in Sarawak. Once this IT ecosystem is adopted and mastered by the children, Sarawak is in safe hands facing the digital economy.

Our ministry (Women, family and community wellbeing) is committed that all children in Sarawak are equipped with digital literacy so that they are not left behind in the digitalization era. For that, we are so grateful and thankful to Fondation Rolf Schnyder, The Dariu Foundation and their partners

The ChildSafe Program is very good and effective where the children actually learn a lot on how to protect themselves in this day and age. They need to learn about body safety to effectively protect themselves and others.

I’m so thankful to Fondation Rolf Schnyder’s ChildSafe Program. I personally found it very helpful especially the recommendations of which was made. (The Site Safety Assessment) to made it a safer place in pre-schools. I recommend all the kindergartens to have this program. It will help them a lot. I find it very helpful to me.

ChildSafe is a good program. I would definitely recommend this program to other kindergartens and also the childcare centres. Teachers need to be informed about the importance of keeping children safe because we are the ones who are dealing with the children everyday and we can keep our children reminded on how to be safe in this world. The ChildSafe Team has done so well to bring in this program to us.
