The Human Safety Net

The Human Safety Net Switzerland Foundation, a foundation set up by Generali Switzerland, is committed to supporting projects that benefit disadvantaged families and people with a refugee or migrant background. We want to give them the chance to lead a safe, secure and self-determined life.





Through The Human Safety Net Switzerland Foundation, we support projects in Switzerland that tackle a wide variety of social challenges, but which all share a common goal: creating opportunities for disadvantaged people to unlock their full potential. The idea of "people helping people" is the main driving force behind The Human Safety Net, a global initiative launched by the Generali Group. This means teaming up with partner organisations from civil society and the academic world to achieve our goal. And our employees are also dedicating their energy and expertise to making the initiative a success.


As part of this global movement powered by the Generali Group, which supports 24 programmes in 21 different countries, we here in Switzerland are focusing on two priority issues: together with our partners the Marie Meierhofer Institut für das Kind (an organisation devoted to early childhood development) and Capacity, we seek to promote the welfare of disadvantaged families and empower people with a refugee or migrant background to develop their entrepreneurial skills.
