Fondation Rolf Schnyder

Fondation Rolf Schnyder is a philanthropic organization founded in Switzerland in 2012 with the goal of helping those in need, especially children. We were established to fulfil the wish of Rolf W Schnyder, the late husband of our founder, to make the world a better place. Persatuan Kebajikan Rolf Schnyder (Reg. Number: PPM-011-14-28022019), the Malaysian branch of FRS, works to continue this mission in Malaysia through initiatives such as KIDS: Bits & Bytes, which empowers children with digital literacy; The Digital Technologies Seniors Program, a partnership with Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus that connects young people and senior citizens through technology coaching and reciprocal mentorship; and ChildSafe, a proactive child protection program for schools.

Our founder, Datin Chai Schnyder, knows that there are many challenges and problems in the world, and that it can be difficult to know how to make a difference. However, she has learned that every effort counts and that following her heart can lead to meaningful encounters with hardworking people who are dedicated to helping those in need. She believes that education is key to helping people understand that there is a bright future ahead and to make the right choices for themselves and the world. Through the initiatives of Fondation Rolf Schnyder, she hopes to give as many people as possible the chance to learn, to hope, and to be happy.

Our Impact

We are grateful for Persatuan Kebajikan Rolf Schnyder’s KIDS: Bits & Bytes Foundational Coding Program for pre-schools in Sarawak. Once this IT ecosystem is adopted and mastered by the children, Sarawak is in safe hands facing the digital economy.

Our ministry (Women, family and community wellbeing) is committed that all children in Sarawak are equipped with digital literacy so that they are not left behind in the digitalization era. For that, we are so grateful and thankful to Fondation Rolf Schnyder, The Dariu Foundation and their partners

The ChildSafe Program is very good and effective where the children actually learn a lot on how to protect themselves in this day and age. They need to learn about body safety to effectively protect themselves and others.

I’m so thankful to Fondation Rolf Schnyder’s ChildSafe Program. I personally found it very helpful especially the recommendations of which was made. (The Site Safety Assessment) to made it a safer place in pre-schools. I recommend all the kindergartens to have this program. It will help them a lot. I find it very helpful to me.

ChildSafe is a good program. I would definitely recommend this program to other kindergartens and also the childcare centres. Teachers need to be informed about the importance of keeping children safe because we are the ones who are dealing with the children everyday and we can keep our children reminded on how to be safe in this world. The ChildSafe Team has done so well to bring in this program to us.
