Once a year we run a fundraising event with the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SRF), Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) and Radiotelevisione Svizzera (RSI), called Jeder Rappen zählt in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, Coeur à Coeur in the French-speaking part and Ogni centesimo conta in the Italian-speaking part of the country.
The money raised since 2015 goes towards helping young adults aged 15 to 25 living in Switzerland who do not have any formal qualifications and find it difficult to integrate into society and the workplace. We also support young migrants who recently arrived in Switzerland.
In Switzerland, there are many young people who need help gaining a foothold in a job or, indeed, in life. They face a multitude of problems and are not equipped to embark on vocational training or complete it successfully.
We support organizations throughout Switzerland which help young people on their path to adulthood and in finding a career.
Our partner relief organizations carry out projects tailored precisely to the needs of such young people:
"This support is not just a stop-gap for people in need, it is intended to improve their situation long term."Fabienne Vermeulen, Head of Assistance in Switzerland at Swiss Solidarity
Over 65 million people worldwide find themselves fleeing from war, persecution and extreme poverty. According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), half of these are children, almost 100,000 of whom are having to cope alone.
We support organizations which care for young migrants recently arrived in Switzerland.
Our partner relief organizations carry out projects tailored precisely to the needs of young migrants:
Young women in Switzerland often face particular problems.We support organizations which help vulnerable young women, e.g. migrants, young mothers without any qualifications and young women who want to get out of prostitution.
The organizations carry out projects tailored precisely to the needs of such young people:
Your donation makes a difference. Your solidarity provides help directly to people in need in Switzerland.
Up to the end of October 2017 we also provided social assistance to individuals in need in Switzerland, in the form of one-off financial aid.
For example, we helped them pay the rent, childcare costs and medical costs such as doctor’s bills, glasses, dentist bills etc.
Each year we supported over 3,000 people to the amount of around CHF 1 million.
In 2017, we committed ourselves to sustainably delivering assistance to people in distress in Switzerland and we sought to meet the new requirements of humanitarian aid. The new year has a number of challenges in store for us, including the threat to our partnership with SSR.
For the very first time, RTS is organising a major fundraiser, Cœur à Cœur, to fight poverty in Switzerland, in collaboration with Swiss Solidarity.
