Donors and Partners
The goal of BERLIN BILINGUAL SCHOOL is to provide a high-quality German-English education from the first grade for children from all income levels. BERLIN BILINGUAL SCHOOL is an independent state-funded school, operated by the non-profit Pfefferwerk gGmbH. As these sources of income cannot fully cover expenses, we seek corporate partners, private donors and public opinion leaders who will work with us to support the advancement of bi-lingual education in Berlin.
