Our projects

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

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.
