Sir Peter Ustinov Foundation: Our magazine

Discover the whole world of the Sir Peter Ustinov Foundation

Die Sir Peter Ustinov Stiftung hat sich für Sie schick gemacht.

Vermutlich haben Sie es schon gemerkt: auf unserer Webseite hat sich eine ganze Menge getan und auch unser Design hat sich ganz grundlegend verändert. Wir haben in den letzten Wochen also fleißig gewerkelt, um Ihnen Ihren Online-Besuch bei der Sir Peter Ustinov Stiftung einfacher und übersichtlicher zu gestalten.

In Zusammenarbeit mit unserer Design-Agentur finalart aus Langen ist dabei eine Webseite entstanden, die ihren Fokus noch deutlicher auf unser Hilfsangebot mit einer besseren Basisversorgung, Schulbildung und kreativen Projekten für Kinder in schwierigen Lebenssituationen legt. Erkennbar ist dies nicht nur an unserem neuen Logo, das eine gebende und eine nehmende Hand symbolisiert. Auch unser neues Motto „Die Welt mit Freude verändern!“ bringt auf den Punkt, was unserer Stiftung so am Herzen liegt: Kindern durch den einfachen Zugang zu Bildung und Kreativität eine Perspektive für ein Leben in Freude und Sicherheit zu geben.

Schauen Sie sich doch einfach mal ein bisschen bei uns um und lernen Sie dabei unser Stiftungs-Team, die Familie Ustinov und das weltweite Ustinov Netzwerk mit seinen zahlreichen Angeboten für Bildung und gegen Vorurteile kennen. Dabei wünschen wir Ihnen viel Freude!

Willkommen auf unserer neuen Website!
