Help us unlock the potential of refugees!

Who are we?

Refugee Voices is a multi award-winning NGO with a great track record of helping vulnerable communities find their voices and become advocates for their identity. Our team has trained over 300 migrants in Switzerland from over 15+ nationalities (on a shoe-string budget!). We offer a unique, first-in-class confidence building program that helps promote proactivity, motivation and increases performance across personal and professional metrics! Now, we need your help to continue offering our magic to the local community!

Why a crowdfunding campaign? Why now?

Today more than ever, we need your help: in order to continue running our operations in 2021, and to be able to sponsor at least 15 participants next year, we are looking to raise 3’750+ CHF. We have fingers crossed for your generous support to enable us to hit 2021 running! We rely on an incredibly talented and dedicated team of volunteers to make our programs happen. It’s been a rollercoaster year building a young organisation that’s bringing innovation into the integration space, but we did it! So now we need to look to our fans in the community to enable Refugee Voices to continue --> so that we can keep sharing our magic!

What do we do? (aka: what gets us excited?!)

Refugee Voices offers a unique, first-in-class confidence-building and storytelling program. Our program focuses on unlocking people’s potential and strengthening their existing superpowers by further developing their soft skills, building connections, and taking ownership of their identity and story. We’ve learnt these are paramount to support sustainable professional and social integration into local society.

Our recipe is simple but powerful: our goal is to teach our participants about self-expression, communication and self-awareness in a creative manner and give them the skills needed to unlock the doors to successful professional and social integration and recognize their inherent strengths! ⭐

Our program culminates in a live performance for the public; having the participants use skills they acquired through activities based on public speaking, slam-poetry, theater and the art of storytelling as a basis for its production. It gives participants the chance to share their stories with renewed confidence: the challenges they've overcome and the success they've achieved. This allows the public to gain a better understanding of what our participants have had to overcome. It brings together people from different backgrounds and helps build bridges between diverse communities.
