Siemens Siftung

As a charitable foundation, we are committed to sustainable social development. A secure basic supply, high-quality education and understanding about culture are essential. In our international project work, we therefore support people in meeting these challenges of our time on their own initiative and responsibly. Together with our partners, we develop solutions and programmes and implement them together. Technological and social innovations play a central role in this. Transparency and impact orientation form the basis of our actions. Our geographical focus is on regions in Africa and Latin America, as well as Germany and other European countries.

Circular economy, the recycling of electronic waste and sustainable resource management are important elements of our work with social enterprises in Kenya and worldwide.

The implementation of the principle of circular economy in our work with social enterprises has a high priority in our commitment to electric mobility in rural sub-Saharan Africa. An e-waste recycling and “second use” project at Lake Victoria, which is currently under construction, forms the basis for further planned activities in this sector.
