Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Early learning support and parent education» 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.

Mothers and fathers who speak a foreign language often lack information about how best to prepare their children for kindergarten and school. In the regions of Basel Stadt/Baselland and Western Switzerland, HEKS/EPER supports foreign language-speaking mothers and fathers with practical ideas for the targeted stimulation of their infants so as to develop their motor, cognitive, language and social skills. In addition, parents learn about family-oriented facilities such as playgrounds and family and cultural centres. They also get to meet other families, thereby becoming better socially networked. In Berne and Eastern Switzerland, HEKS/EPER also offers German language courses geared to mothers and their preschool children.
