A Historical Blueprint

The Francke Foundations are a lively hub for social and educational professions in the centre of the city of Halle. Founded in 1698 by August Hermann Francke, this "educational cosmos" is housed in a historic half-timbered complex. Its mission is to carry Francke's legacy into the modern age, both by preserving his institution's unique campus and collections and by reviving his vision of social and educational justice. A cosmopolitan present and solid roots in the humanist tradition form a synergy of the Francke Foundations.
