Support a child in the slum Kouri Hanna in his or her school education so that he or she can once be well prepared to take personal responsibility for life.

Estación Esperanza is known in its own and neighboring slums as a responsible organization that provides professional support where economic and/or social resources are insufficient. The project focuses on working with children and young people and their social environment. This includes first and foremost the family, but also the relatives and the neighborhood. People are motivated and supported to constructively shape their lives on their own responsibility so that they can achieve a significant improvement in their living conditions.

We have a cooperative relationship with a private school (state schools are very poor) and subsidize children’s attendance, as well as speech therapy and psychological support if required. This should have an impact on family life. Therefore the parents sign an agreement: the support lasts as long as they are willing to participate in supportive further education and in discussions with the project management (pedagogical supervision).

Within the framework of our sponsorships, persons in Switzerland take over the financing for a child: Monthly CHF 60.00 to the “Association Estación Esperanza” based in Switzerland (tax deduction guaranteed) with the remark “sponsorship”. The amount is entirely for the purposes described above.

However, we would like to point out that – in response to irregularities in other organizations that arrange sponsorships – direct contact with the child is not possible: correspondence, Christmas parcels, etc. are not provided for. However, sponsors are informed sporadically about the situation of the child or, if there are fundamental changes in the child’s life, are informed immediately.
