In partnership with Geneva’s Accueil de Nuit, shapers complement the homeless’ dinner once a week. Every night they can get soup, bread and tea, and we try to make it just a bit better, with fresh food and good company.
A place is not a home until someone is integrated within a community. We are partnering with Hospice General to build lasting relationships with refugees in Geneva, to provide support and guidance as they build a home. Geneva shapers are paired with interested refugees and meet once a month to connect, play sports, provide support, and to learn from refugees. Shapers and refugees are busy exchanging languages, learning from each other, and building lasting friendships.
Childcare for Careers intends to improve gender diversity at executive-level by removing a cause for women leaving careers: expensive childcare. Our aim is to make child care affordable and a competitive hiring advantage by providing a blueprint and supporting Shapers team for companies to support or subsidised local childcare for employees.
Every year thousands of electronic devices from corporations in Switzerland are becoming obsolete and need to be replaced by newer ones. Unfortunately, the majority of the fully functioning devices are either thrown away or recycled, without being used again before the end of their life cycle.
On the other hand, many non-profit organisations are in need of such devices for their projects or operations but they might not always have connections to companies with spare devices that could be recuperated. The Re-Use programme aims to match the corporate donors and the non-profit organisations in order to increase awareness about e-waste and reduce them.
