Robeco Foundation donation request


The Foundation has signed partnerships with two non-profit organizations, providing longer-term support:

  • Room to Read: a non-profit focused on girls’ education and children’s literacy in Asia and Africa. Our donation enables Room to Read to implement its three-year program at a primary school in South Africa, close to the region where our clients are based.
