IPA's New Collaboration with Hottingen High School

The number of schools looking for collaboration with IPA is constantly rising, and that ...





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.

IPA's New Collaboration with Hottingen High School

makes us very happy. At Hottingen High School, we started an optional course in late February, which attracted the impressive number of 22 students. They voluntarily work extra time after a long day at school, committing themselves to a project for half a year.

The participants, who meet every Tuesday from 4.15 to 6 p.m., are a motley crew. They come from several classes, vary in age and have very different backgrounds. What unites them, however, is an interest in development cooperation and the will to help people in need. There is no better basis for a good collaboration. It certainly started very promisingly. The group settled on a project in Cameroon. But are they going for education or economic development? Drinking water well or food production? What would be sensible, what sustainable? When analysing potential projects, such fundamental questions need to be answered.
