The “Association Equilibre” stands for balance and compensation. A balance between North and South, between poor and rich, privileged and disadvantaged population. The flow of refugees shows that the balance is disturbed. The “Association Equilibre” is a “social Holding” and wants as an equalization payment to promote occupational training in the North and South so that people on site will have a better life.
Through the company “JLT” existing since 2015, the “Association Equilibre” supports a precise integration of refugees into Swiss culture and work environment.
The future benefits out of the private held project JLT Company are going to be paid back into the “Association Equilibre” and can be invested in future projects
Two third of all asylum applications made in Switzerland in 2014 were from people from Africa.
The integration of accepted refugees is a big challenge for the Authorities and also for the prívate sector. Also private people have to act.
Equilibre supports occupational training in Africa and integration in Switzerland. We want to contribute to a better balance between North and South and rich and poor people.
Equilibre follows its aims based on helping people to help themselves.
This is also valid for our financial principles.
The “Association Equilibre” invests its money into prívate companies whose purpose is integration and education. If there is a benefit, it will go back into the “Association Equilibre”. By this way we close a full circle.
late Swiss Federal Council
«Trough production of JLT bags refugees and people in prison find a possibility of education and integration. Between themselves and ourselves a triangle of real or (lived) solidarity is formed.»
late State Secretary
«Equilibre allows refugees an opportunity to realize themselves. Our aim must be that these people can live here on their own – without any governmental support.»
President of the Swiss Red Cross
«Equilibre helps people to find a job and to get integrated into Society. This task is of great importance to me»
