The Sprouts Foundation Story

The Sprouts Foundation was established in 2008 by the Shuper family, to create a legacy of social responsibility with a focus on disadvantaged children in Asia. Sprouts began as a family commitment, providing mainly financial assistance to a variety of projects in children's health and education in China, India, Hong Kong and Nepal.

We continue to search for ways to bring better education to children who need it most in Asia. Let us know if you would like to support us or partner with us.
