Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Public services» 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.

Education, healthcare, social welfare and infrastructure such as electricity, water, waste disposal or roadways are among the services that a State generally provides for its citizens – affordably and of sufficiently good quality. Regrettably, this is hardly the case in the countries where HEKS/EPER operates. Minorities, older people or people with disabilities as well as communities in remote areas face particular difficulty. HEKS/EPER supports disadvantaged people in accessing public services, and promotes dialogue between the population and the authorities.
