Inside news

Dr Ludwig Leyendecker will leave the Board of Trustees of the Kinder-Schirm Foundation at the end of his second term in office. Ludwig had been a member of the Board of Trustees since the founding of the Kinder-Schirm Foundation in 2013. The founding couple and the entire Board of Trustees took note of Ludwig’s decision with great regret. During the ten years of his membership of the Board of Trustees, Ludwig set many important accents with his wise and constructive advice. We were particularly pleased that Ludwig appropriated the Foundation’s concern. Over the years, helping children and young people in São Paulo has also become a matter of personal importance for Ludwig. We really appreciate Ludwig’s great commitment. We deeply regret his leaving and wish him all the best for the future.
