  • Info-Zvieri – Sunday August 30, 2020 (updated)
    Like last year and the years before, there is our popular information afternoon in Stäfa again this year, but with some adjustments due to the Corona-Visrus pandemic.

    Report “My time in Ventanila” I imagined volunteering in a completely different way. To be honest, I always thought that such an assignment is above all exhausting. I didn’t think that I could gain so much from it. I was in Ventanilla for almost three months, at Estacion Esperanza.  I was pretty nervous on the way there and I thought, “What am I going to do?” But only two weeks later, all my concerns were gone. I felt comfortable very quickly and realized that I really enjoy my work. My tasks could not have been more varied: Tutoring, teaching dancing in school, preparing and conducting afternoons for children, leading floorball training, designing the children’s program for street missions, etc. My tasks could not have been more varied Annina Imhof I could learn a lot about myself and I think it is a good experience to live in another culture for a while, it broadens your horizon. Sure, there were also challenges. Everything in another language can be exhausting from time to time and living with many different people is always a little challenging. But all in all, I can say I enjoyed the time to the fullest. I was able to learn a lot about myself and I think it is a good experience to live in another culture for a while, it broadens your horizon. Aninna Imhof Getting to know a new culture, getting out of my comfort zones, trying new things and sharing life with people from there. This time was a very valuable experience for me that I will never forget.  VThank you, Estacion Esperanza for this time.  This page is also available in: German
  • Bigna Färber
    Review of my time in Ventanilla It didn’t take long and living and working with the people in Ventanilla became part of my daily life. It was normal that children in the slum welcomed me and waved to me or that I played football with them between the unfinished houses. That we studied together for school until late in the evening or did puzzles together. All the more ironic were all the tourists at the airport who saw Machu Picchu but never went into a house of an average Peruvian family. I realized how much more valuable such an experience, such a commitment is for me! It didn’t take long and living and working with the people in Ventanilla became a daily routine for me. Bigna Färber Even though I am happy to live here in Switzerland in some comparisons, for example of the school system or the government (unfortunately I heard some corrupt stories), I have to say that I learned a lot from the Peruvian attitude and took it with me. I hope that I will be able to take this confident and relaxed way of living and the motivation of constantly looking for solutions home with me and integrate it into my everyday life in Switzerland. I know that life goes on in Peru and I am always happy to hear from you. It is different to read a newsletter, now that I have a connection to every place and every person involved. I hope that I will be able to take this confident and relaxed way of living and the motivation of constantly looking for solutions home with me and integrate it into my everyday life in Switzerland. Bigna Färber I wish you all the best for the future! This page is also available in: German

At the “estacion de gasolina” people fill up with petrol so that their car can get on.

At the “Estacion Esperanza” you can fill up hope for your soul. This is also energy that enables us to progress.
