Back from Malawi

Two weeks of project work lie behind us and we are still somewhat exhausted. It is ...





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.

Back from Malawi

not only the long and tiresome flights, the more than 1,500 kilometres covered by car and the uncomfortable beds. It is also the intense work and the many experiences that are still on our minds.

For instance, it is very gratifying to see the inhabitants of Kwembe so happy about finally having a source of drinking water in their village. And we feel the deep gratitude of the girls having the opportunity to live and study in safety in our boarding school in Nkhomola. Then again we stand in disbelief in a school building where more than 500 pupils have to sit on the floor. Or we see women taking their 'drinking water' out of mud holes. Knowing that we are their only hope is not always easy to bear, not least because we are aware that we cannot provide immediate help to all of them.
