Run for children with THSN

The lessons children learn in their first six years stay with them for life. But fragile family situations are often socially isolating for children. This means they miss out on important fundamental experiences. According to figures from Caritas Switzerland, around 133,000 children are affected by poverty. A further 317,000 are living on the poverty line. Together with the Human Safety Net Switzerland foundation, you are helping parents to lay strong foundations for their children’s future despite their difficult circumstances.

The 2024 project: circus days for seriously ill children and their siblings

Your donation will support the Pomilo circus days at Treffpunkt Tschüdanga in Valais. These give seriously ill children and their siblings the opportunity to escape everyday life and try something new. This includes circus skills, physical theatre, outdoor play and contact with animals. Creativity and shared experiences are the focus. The children are supervised by experienced carers. These circus days allow seriously ill children and their siblings to enjoy positive experiences and recharge their batteries. Parents receive some respite and can strengthen their connections with each other.

Every donation counts. Thank you for your support.

About The Human Safety Net Switzerland

The Human Safety Net Switzerland foundation funds projects in Switzerland that benefit children aged 0 to 6 years and their parents in fragile family situations. Together with its partner organisation, Marie Meierhofer Institut für das Kind (MMI), the foundation focuses on early years education. The foundation was established by the insurer Generali Switzerland in 2019. It serves as the bedrock of its social commitment within Switzerland.

The Human Safety Net Switzerland foundation is supporting the national "MegaMarieplus" programme to empower family centres. This gives more parents and their children under six years of age in fragile family situations access to high-quality services and a stimulating environment. The programme is jointly overseen by the Marie Meierhofer Institut für das Kind and the Netzwerk Bildung und Familie.
