“Omnes, omnia, omnino.” (All humans should be able to learn all things in all thoroughness.) This quote by the Czech educator, theologian and philosopher Jan Komenský (J. A. Comenius) is the motto of the KomenskýFond, which ERSTE Foundation established together with Caritas. The cross-border initiative aims to fight poverty through education. During the KomenskýFond conference Rita Süssmuth, former German Federal Minister of Youth, Family, Women and Health and former President of the German Bundestag, explains why pursuing these aims has also been one of her priorities over the last few decades.
