ROSE was founded by Seshaiah Veeragandham and Robert Fellner-Feldegg in India, and in 2011 the German version of the non-profit association ROSE was created. The German organisation is headed by Robert and Eva Fellner-Feldegg. Their labour, know-how and a good amount of enthusiasm created a financial basis for the activities in India. This collected money is used locally to create a pleasant school atmosphere for the pupils. For example, benches, books and a playground were purchased, families and above all girls were supported and top pupils were further supported with scholarships.
