The main duty of the not-for-profit Sto Foundation is to fund young people during their training. In addition to architecture students, the Foundation supports trainee painters and plasterers from disadvantaged backgrounds who are in need of financial assistance but who are still role models for others due to their exceptional achievements.
The main focuses in this regard are the specialised training and personal development of the students. The current education system urgently needs stimuli which combine not only theories, practical applications, and the construction industry on a constructive level of dialogue, but also the general interests of its students. This gives life to new products as a result of the close cooperation between designers, contractors, and the building material industry, where experimental initiatives are often required.
