Our projects

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

Discrimination adversely affects not just those directly concerned – it harms the entire society. Social or economic exclusion affects minorities, people with disabilities, the elderly, rural communities, young people and often women as well. Discrimination causes poverty and conflicts. HEKS/EPER helps disadvantaged people claim their right to education, to having their voices heard and to an income. Here HEKS/EPER works not only with minorities but also with the majority population and encourages dialogue between the various stakeholders. Solutions that are supported by all parties make the community stronger.
