“A GAME CHANGER AND HOPE CREATOR" - 
Karl Kübel Prize of Germany awarded to Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus


On September 30,  the Karl Kuebel Foundation for Child and Family awarded Nobel Peace Prize winner Professor Muhammad Yunus with the Karl Kübel Prize. The foundation honored his extraordinary and multifaceted commitment to families all over the world.

“Family counts” – the jubilee motto of the Karl Kübel Foundation, celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, in Bensheim, Germany.

Dr. Kerstin Humberg, deputy chairwoman of the foundation board of the Karl Kübel Foundation said that Yunus had also made it possible for the children and families of his female customers to lead a better life. They praised the economist from Bangladesh as a great source of hope in times of global crises spanning from the CODIV-19 pandemic and global warming to new wars. "He is truly a game changer and hope creator". 

"Each of us can positively influence the lives of others around us. Now and in the future, we are all setters of the course," said Humberg, who also pointed out parallels between philanthropist Karl Kübel and Muhammad Yunus: "Both pursued social goals through entrepreneurial means as early as the 1980s, deliberately focusing on 'helping people to help themselves.'" Yunus and Kübel were pioneers in entrepreneurial development cooperation, she said.

The Karl Kübel Foundation for Children and Families, founded in 1972 by entrepreneur Karl Kübel, works according to the principle of "helping people to help themselves" and supports disadvantaged people in Germany and abroad.

The Karl Kübel Foundation for Children and Families, headquartered in Bensheim in southern Hesse, has been supporting children and their parents worldwide for 50 years.
