Riesenkampff Foundation

Estonian Riesenkampff family roots date back to the 16th century and the ties have remained strong even after the family relocated to Germany. 

Riesenkampff Foundation has been actively supporting children related activities in the Baltics for a number of years already and started codesters.club to promote career-oriented technology education at school level.
