Our projects in Switzerland
The project for diversity and against discrimination
In 2001 terre des hommes schweiz launched a project involving extensive collaboration with youth in Switzerland. Today, imagine is more than just a project; it has evolved into an ongoing programme. The imagine team not only organises events with widespread appeal that tie in with important social issues – they also conduct workshops on these topics that are designed for and with the local youth. The side events, the festival and the workshop are all designed and conducted by a team of over 40 volunteers.
Perspectives for young migrants
Adolescents and young adults with a refugee background
are strengthened in their personality and their concerns
are made available to a wider public. Twice a year, a workshop is held with those affected.
Young people worldwide against violence
Young people from all projects and partner countries, exchange their experiences in an international network. Within the framework of a joint Global Action Month, the youth groups organise and publish worldwide actions on "Youth stand up against violence".
Awareness-raising programme for children's rights and sustainable development
With the help of tdh éducation, school children become
children's rights and sustainable development. Various workshops offered to schools are designed to demonstrate solidarity and the possibility of making a difference.

Baobab Books is the specialist agency for the promotion of cultural diversity in children's and young people's literature. Our symbol is the impressive Baobab, the baobab tree native to Africa. Baobab Books is dedicated to the dialogue between cultures.
