ZWILLING CARE® - WE HELP
WE DO WHAT FAMILIES DO BEST – WE CARE
ZWILLING Care was founded to help people that had a rough start in life. We support projects all over the world with a focus on educating, training and integrating children, young people and adults with disabilities. With continued support and long-term funding they are able to achieve more independence and social participation – throughout their entire lives.
ZWILLING FOUNDATION PONDICHERRY, INDIA
In India it is not self-evident that everyone has the opportunity to learn a trade. We wanted to change that by starting an initiative for young people with disabilities in the southern Indian town of Pondicherry. Because a job is not only a job, it’s a future. Click for more information.
Money can’t buy love, but it can help you to spread love. In 2015 we came up with this sponsorship program. With this program we are not only supporting 25 disabled children during school hours, but organizing professional follow-ups and regular doctors checks and provide surgical interventions or handicapped-accessible equipment like hearing aids, toilets for the disabled, wheelchairs or whatever is needed.

CHAO THAI MAI SCHOOL
In 2004 a tsunami destroyed the Chao Thai Mai School in the Phang Nga Province in Thailand – and the chance of education for all the kids that used to attend this school. Along with the Heinecke Foundation we helped to rebuild it. Today the school is back and so is the kids’ laughter. Disadvantaged children receive targeted support.
Vietnam School Project
Since 2018, Zwilling is working with saigonchildren, a non-profit organization based in Vietnam, on a three-year project focusing on building a school, organizing special trainings for teachers, and delivering scholarships for disadvantaged pupils in Phung Hiep District - the poorest district in Hau Giang Province in Southern Vietnam. More than 1,000 pupils will benefit from this project over the course of three years and deliver a much-needed positive change in the lives of these children. Children with special needs will receive additional support to lift their chances of pursuing a brighter future.
COOPERATION WITH WORKSHOPS FOR THE DISABLED
Inclusion is just a word. But as soon as you make it your everyday mission it becomes something really great. We started this mission over 20 years ago and are more than happy about the things we have achieved. Over 70 disabled employees are part of the ZWILLING team in Solingen/Germany and over 50 disabled employees work with us in Albacete/Spain. And we couldn't be prouder of every single one of them.
Pure Water for Nirvana High School in Kottapukkam
Children get often sick for drinking polluted water. Or they avoid drinking tap water, which causes sometimes dyhidration during school day. The ZWILLING Foundation sponsored a professional water purification station for the Nirvana High School in 2017 and has been taking over the responsibility to maintain the systems and to keep the filters clean.
JAL SPECIAL HOME INDIA
Since 2018 the ZWILLING Foundation is sponsoring a home for the children and their mothers who are undergoing treatment for cancer. The hospital provides the treatment but not the location for the family during this period.
