HEKS/EPER is making a difference in Europe

HEKS/EPER operates in ten countries in Europe. In five countries of Eastern Europe, HEKS promotes social and economic inclusion for the Roma and other minorities through improved housing, access to government-run social and health services and through projects for their inclusion in the education system and the job market. In nine countries, HEKS/EPER supports the diaconal organizations of the Reformed Churches in their social commitment to helping disadvantaged people, be they the sick or elderly, people with disabilities, minorities or refugees. Church parish partnerships also facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experiences between Switzerland and Eastern Europe.

In the South Caucasus, HEKS/EPER supports fruit growers and livestock farmers in fetching fair prices for their high-quality products. HEKS/EPER also engages in peace-making between various ethnic groups there.
