Your donations allow the Foundation to provide financial assistance and/or cover all holiday and travel costs for less-well-off families.
This is the only way that many children from low-income families will be able to visit Switzerland – the home of their parents or grandparents – and so maintain links with their home country. You can help us to provide support for young citizens who live abroad.
During the holiday camps, the whole world is brought together under one roof for a short time. Children from 50 or more different countries live alongside one another, learning to be tolerant of different cultures and languages. Over two weeks, experienced teams of leaders teach the young people about all kinds of values that go beyond consumerism and prejudice. The Foundation brings together different languages and cultures, helping a small number of individuals understand what world peace and solidarity can mean. Visitors are also allowed simply to be children: running, playing and having fun together. Don´t just take our word for it - have a look at our photo gallery.
We would be pleased to receive donations on behalf of the young Swiss abroad. Many thanks!
