Looking to the future

Your donation allows for a brighter view of the future

Children without a home and young mothers without prospects. Support two programs that help these young people to clearly see a bright future for themselves. So that they can look ahead to the future and successfully embark on their journey. With joy and enthusiasm. Your donation is worth twice its value. Because every Swiss franc will be matched by the UBS Optimus Foundation and its partners. This goes for all donations made by December 31, 2017.

Help 100%

Every franc reaches someone in need.

We choose programs that improve the health, education and safety of children in Switzerland and throughout the world. Only a very few programs satisfy our strict selection criteria. Because we intend our commitment to effect and improve as much as possible. The full 100% of your donation reaches those who need it. UBS assumes the costs of the planning, control and further development of the programs.

Learning for life

«Speed Schools»: the educational program in Lebanon for children from Syria

According to UNHCR, almost 1.2 million people have fled from Syria to the small neighboring country (as of 2015). About half are children.

The project “Speed Schools” is especially designed for Syrian children that have fled to Lebanon. It helps them reenter regular school life with a focused educational program. So that they have a future locally and later back home.

Set course for the future

«AMIE»: the Swiss initiative accompanies young mothers to work

Approximately 23,000 single mothers depend on social assistance in Switzerland. Generally, they have no basic vocational training, which is why they have no chance on the job market.

Many young Swiss mothers must live with their children at subsistence level. The “AMIE” program supports them with courses to complete their school-leaving qualifications or to enter working life. At the same time, they get help in looking after and raising their children.

How to donate Your gift goes further

We guarantee that 100% of your donation will reach programs benefitting children because UBS pays the entire overhead of the foundation.
