The Francke Foundations

Faith Matters - In the Spirit of Luther - The Francke Foundations

Some 300 years ago, the Lutheran pastor August Hermann Francke founded a charity school in Halle-on-the-Saale, about 200 kilometers southwest of Berlin. Today that foundation is an impressive complex of institutions - a veritable town within a town, providing accommodation and employment for more than 4,000 people.
