Hand in Hand

Project idea

Associations may integrate the help of asylum seekers in their projects or events.

Examples of services:

  • Sell badges at carnival
  • Up-keeping forest for a nature conservation organization
  • Festivals, end-of-the-event cleaning
  • Traffic services für pre-school children
  • Installation and dismounting at festivities

Asylum seekers receive meals and 7 Swiss Francs for the commitment which will be paid by the association. In addition the association will pay the transportation costs. 

Goal

Asylum seekers are offered a meaningful occupation and consequently come in touch with other people. Associations receive support with volunteer work and are able to get in touch with asylum seekers.
