Mission and Vision


The Peter Ustinov Foundation is a charity for children founded by Sir Peter Ustinov and his son Igor Ustinov in 1999. Sir Peter Ustinov was an UNICEF ambassador for more than 30 years. In the last 15 years the Foundation has initiated and supported more than 50 aid projects worldwide. The Foundation is based in Frankfurt, Germany.

In keeping with the spirit of Sir Peter and the values of the Ustinov family, the work focuses on granting children – irrespective of their cultural, social, religious or financial background – a chance of an independent and optimistic future primarily by granting access to education. There are three key aspects of our work:

  • Giving children a safe place to live, medical treatment or attend school or vocational training working with partners in the field.
  • Supporting educational programs that teach tolerance, mutual respect and openness.
  • Enabling especially disadvantaged children to train and perform in the “Ustinovian” areas of film, theatre and opera encouraging their creativity and fostering social skills and personal development.



The support of prevention, early detection and treatment programs in Africa was one of the first projects of the foundation and has been proceeded continuously.
