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.

Environmental work assignment – the same and yet different

from last year's environmental work assignment. At the same time, we are in the middle of planning the next assignment for youngsters in Soazza, Switzerland. It sounds like routine. But this time, three things are different. First, it is no longer the managing directory who is in charge of the coordination, but one of IPA's employees. Second, so far IPA has always had to take the initiative and book the desired week via the Swiss Foundation for Environmental Work. This year, the invitation came from Berne. Soazza, they wrote, was asking if IPA was going to send a group in 2019 too. Apparently, the community in the Swiss Alps is more than happy with our youngsters' performance. And finally, there's the recruitment: although IPA could only promote the voluntary activity at some of the high schools in Zurich so far, we have already received 18 applications– three times more than last year. We are very much looking forward to being able to fund another project thanks to the commitment of Swiss students.
