GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN !
HELP US FUND 15 SPONSORED STUDENTS IN 2021
Refugee Voices has created a crowd-funding campaign on @gofundme to raise funds to sponsor 15 participants for our programs in 2021. Funds raised will allow us to help give migrants and refuges the tools and support required to increase their chances of sustainable professional and social integration. Donations large or small are so welcome! With your help, we can change even more lives for the better!
Please support our cause – to learn more:
Integrating into a new country is not easy, especially as a young refugee who has had to leave family, friends and careers back in their home country.
The level of unemployment among refugees in Switzerland remains around 80%. It is a true waste of talent!
We believe an essential step is to build self-confidence to access the opportunities available.
Refugee Voices is a program designed for migrants and refugees who would like to improve their confidence, to better integrate into their new lives here in Switzerland.
That means finding the confidence to learn the language, to make friends, to find work, and to become a leader in the Swiss migrant community.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Je vois maintenant un avenir où je réalise mes rêves, en Suisse
J'ai aimé l'entente, la compréhension, la liberté de véhiculer un message, les vécus originaux et émouvants des intervenants.
Ça m'a permis de voir la réalité de la migration (...) L’idée de confiance en soi m'a beaucoup interpellé, parce qu'elle
accompagne le respect. Et pour gagner le respect, il faut comprendre qu’on y a droit.
