Thomas Sabo runs a foundation which supports numerous charitable causes, with a focus on international charity projects for children. The foundation aims to help reduce child poverty and provide an outlook for the future.
Thomas Sabo’s wife, Luz Enith Sabo, is the Chair of the Thomas Sabo foundation. Particularly close to her heart are the projects in Columbia. She herself grew up in Columbia and is familiar with the situation first-hand, which has motivated her commitment to the educational centre MANOS PROVIDENTES.
MANOS PROVIDENTES was established in 1998 by the Theatine order of monks in Cali, Columbia. Amidst a community with many social problems, the monks look after the needs of local families to provide socially disadvantaged children and adolescents with a comprehensive education.
