Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Job market integration» in the region of Zurich/Schaffhausen

Through all of its programmes, the HEKS/EPER Regional Office Zurich/Schaffhausen works actively for the integration of socially deprived groups, and advocates on behalf of asylum seekers and migrants so that they have a chance of a fair asylum procedure and are able to exercise their rights in society. The projects and programmes are designed to foster independence and a sense of social belonging on the part of beneficiaries. The Regional Office works closely with national churches, the Swiss Refugee Council, regional authorities, leading municipal, cantonal and federal entities, as well as with private institutions.

Unemployment can be devastating in our society. Lack of social recognition, social isolation, illness and depression are potential consequences of unemployment. Thus, when the jobless re-enter the world of work, it is not just a matter of securing a livelihood, but also of boosting their overall state of health. There are many reasons for joblessness. There is no reason to abandon the jobless, however. HEKS/EPER supports jobseekers in the regions of Aargau/Solothurn, Basel Stadt/Baselland, Berne, Eastern Switzerland, Western Switzerland and Zurich/Schaffhausen in re-entering the job market.
