YOUR SUPPORT MAKES IT POSSIBLE
For refugees, the path of fleeing from their country is far from over when arriving in Switzerland. Paradise is not awaiting them here. The challenge is at least as big as these people have already mastered to come here. In order to gain a foothold in Switzerland and create a future, refugees need not only good knowledge of the German language, but they also need to learn about local customs, seek contact with locals and also receive support in school matters to take up vocational training in Switzerland.
Sportegration supports its participants on this path. With the provision of a sports program, Sportegration not only enables refugees to improve their physical health, but also makes an essential contribution to their mental health, by making them feel part of a team. Self-confidence is built by taking on coaching tasks and difficult life situations can be handled with the social contacts they get to know during this time.
Sportegration values reliability, punctuality and good behaviour, which are central values in our culture. Due to the different nationalities who join the training, participants are encouraged to speak German. With regular training you can hear how their language improves. Finally, Sportegration supports its participants with the urgently needed school knowledge, since refugees were often unable to enjoy school education in their home country and during their journey.
Sportegration is a non-profit organization that is financed exclusively through donations. We are tax-exempt in the Canton of Zurich and issue a confirmation to the tax authorities for each donation.
With your financial support, you enable us to continue and expand Sportegration to enable many refugees to integrate socially.
Together we make a difference!
