UBS Optimus Foundation  is an independent grant-making foundation committed to improving the well being of children. The Foundation believes that all children deserve every opportunity to grow and thrive, free from debilitating disease, neglect, abuse, or marginalization.

The Foundation first began supporting Pratham in 2014; since then its funding has evolved in scale and scope. Previously, the Foundation has supported interventions that have been implemented both directly, as well as in partnership with governments in program sites across the country. In its current form, the Foundation funded programming aims to develop and implement a program that will help youth aged 14-18 years prepare for further learning, work and life.

“The unique collaboration model between UBS in India, Optimus and our partners will create a greater impact and amplify the amount of good we do by leveraging all the unique skillsets that we have within the firm.”

Sabine Keller-Busse, Group COO, UBS.

If any UBS client wishes to support any Pratham programme then the Foundation will make a contribution towards the programme for 14-18 years olds outlined above.
