IPA fully stretched with school collaborations

For the first time, IPA staff is working simultaneously with as many as five classes ...





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 fully stretched with school collaborations

from four different schools. Given that preparation, teaching and follow-up take nearly one working day on average per class, it can easily be imagined that our organisation is reaching the limits of its capacity. Far from being a reason to complain, however, this fills us with joy as it gives IPA the opportunity to carry out meaningful projects together with a lot of motivated students. And it is the icing on the cake to have a former Junior on the team who now works as a teacher.

In Horgen (two classes), at the high schools of Zurich Enge and Wohlen, and at the Free Evangelical School in Zurich youngsters are at work. Some have already decided on a project they are going to plan and fund. And the good news from Switzerland has made people in Malawi and Albania rejoice. There is help on the way - what a relief this sentence is for those who have to live without drinking water or medical care.
