We help refugees gain access to employment.

We believe that refugees’ knowledge and skills can make a valuable contribution to our society. 

Helping refugees to realise their potential

We believe that our society can benefit from the skills of people from refugee or migrant backgrounds. We help them to overcome language and cultural barriers, as well as the frequent lack of recognition of their previous careers. 

Being turned down and experiencing unemployment leads to psychological problems, social isolation and dependence on state welfare.

Programme 1: Entrepreneurship

We encourage people with refugee or migrant backgrounds to explore and further develop their skills as entrepreneurs. We also help a number of participants to set up their own businesses and offer small start-up loans.

Programme 2: Career and job market orientation

Despite being highly qualified, many people from refugee or migrant backgrounds find it difficult to find work in Switzerland. Our Access Programme is designed to provide them with everything they’ll need to enter the Swiss labour market. Added to that, we also help them with their social and economic integration in Switzerland.
