Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Church parish partnerships» in the region of Aargau/Solothurn

The HEKS/EPER Regional Office Aargau/Solothurn sees itself as a practice-oriented counselling and service entity that advocates with great professionalism on behalf of deprived groups in our society. The needs of the socially marginalized are effectively being met by providing social and legal services and cooperating with other aid agencies, government authorities and private institutions.

Important priorities in the work of the Regional Office are legal advice for asylum seekers and the socially disadvantaged, and the social inclusion of refugees, migrants and Swiss citizens experiencing poverty. Through its interpreting service, the Regional Office also facilitates contact between foreign language speakers and institutions concerned with health, social and educational matters.

Head of Regional Office:

Regula Schär

Open, vibrant and socially engaged churches effectively attract members and fulfil an important role in society. HEKS/EPER therefore supports the youth and community work of church parishes in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and contributes financially towards the renovation of buildings that are important to church life. HEKS/EPER also promotes solidarity among the Reformed Churches. Partnerships between church parishes in Switzerland and abroad pave the way for reciprocal visits and exchanges and promote support for projects run by partner parishes. Dialogue within the reformed community and with other confessions as well as between church and society enables the Reformed Churches to play an intermediary and social role.
