#RunForChildren with THSN

Who you support with us

On average, there is one child living in poverty in every Swiss school class, and as many as three children per class are at risk of experiencing poverty. Impoverished children are already at a disadvantage when they start school.

Parents and caregivers play a key role here. THSN supports parents with young children in parenting issues and educates them on how to promote learning through play. Parents can consult the professional staff at family centres and meet other families. Our long-term goal is to support as many Swiss family centres as possible in establishing professional services for early childhood education.

Who we are

The Human Safety Net Switzerland, Generali Switzerland’s foundation, supports refugees and disadvantaged families in Switzerland, paying particular attention to young children. Children need a stimulating environment and loving support in order to undergo positive development. Parents and caregivers play a key role here. The Human Safety Net Switzerland offers guidance in this respect, starting with early childhood education. Early childhood education also plays a crucial role in preventing poverty, because the lessons children learn in their first few years stay with them for life. Our goal is to support family centres in Switzerland in building up a range of professional services for disadvantaged families.
