A Final Highlight

There are many special moments for a class of students when working ...





Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

A Final Highlight

with IPA. Looking back, many of them remember the project selection, the pictures of faraway countries, a presentation they gave to a service club, or the time-consumingorganisation of a big event. Their feedback leaves no room for doubt, ranging from "the best of my schooldays" to "that's something I'm going to tell my grandchildren about one day".

Once the project is completed, it is particularly important for IPA to inform the youngsters in detail about how it was done and what results it brought to the local beneficiaries. For this reason, all participants get invited to an extensive PowerPoint presentation. Just recently, this January, the secondary school at Bonstetten were given such a presentation. The students had collected over CHF 60,000 for a health centre in Ng'onga (Malawi). Now they learnt that all sub-projects they had planned could successfully be implemented. The event was a mixture of review and class reunion, and the youngsters were pleased to hear that their great commitment for Malawi has already saved the lives of many people. What remains is good memories on all sides.
