The Foundation is a non-profit organization created in 2006 by the Wittmer Family. It sees education as an agent of change for individuals in the community. The importance of educational development for all to help sustainable development of the Islands.


Development and execution of educational and social programs with the collaboration of our members and partners in the community.


Our values represent the ideals of Captain Rolf Wittmer and Paquita Wittmer and their respect for the community and a deep understanding of the delicate environment of the islands.


We are committed with the same passion of excellence for work and service which has been a stamp of the family for generations and to the promotion of the educational and social causes in the community of the Galapagos Islands.
