Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Social inclusion» in the region of Basel (both sides)

The programmes offered by the HEKS/EPER Basel Regional Office make a vital contribution to social cohesion and the inclusion of disadvantaged people in society. Through its advocacy work it promotes equal opportunity for all, irrespective of culture, religion, status and gender. Another important cause is the promotion of harmonious coexistence between migrants and locals. The Regional Office works closely with cantonal churches, regional and cantonal authorities as well as with private institutions.

Head of the Regional Office:

Ever more people are being excluded because of their social background, ethnicity, age, gender or religion. Integrating people with a migration background can be compounded, for example, by the lack of the requisite language proficiency, ignorance of Switzerland's cultural specificities or by disadvantages on the job market. HEKS/EPER works actively to ensure that the affected people have access to education, work, government programmes and services. But integration is incumbent on society as a whole, which calls for openness as well as regulatory structures that ensure the right of social participation for all. This implies that everyone has the same rights and opportunities and that features such as gender, age, social background, nationality or religion do not give rise to discrimination.
