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.

Step by Step Towards Food Security

the village can believe in food security. The students from Enge High School had planned three sub-projects and, taking a huge effort, managed to fund all three of them.

As a result, it was possible to start with the construction work for a storehouse in June. The new building is to minimise post-harvest losses in future. At the same time it can be used as a place for selling surplus stocks. Meanwhile the implementation of the main project got underway too. An area of totally 5 ha (over 12 acres) is being equipped with an irrigation system operated by a solar pump. The peasants in Kanjululu are already looking forward to cultivating maize and vegetables. In preparation, they receive systematic training and – most importantly – daily coaching in the fields.

The third sub-project (building up a herd of goats) is soon to follow, rounding off the project. By then, famine and poverty will be a thing of Kanjululu's past.
