What are the criteria for selecting schools?

Schools where Aide et Action intervenes are selected according to most urgent needs assessed, especially in terms of primary schooling; as well as according to the motivation shown by local populations.

Aide et Action then chooses, as a general rule, to sponsor the quasi totality of children in each chosen school in their first year.

Can I obtain the contact details of the school or project I sponsor?

Most often, your school/project is located in an area bereft of postal services. Our local on-site teams are therefore tasked with conveying mail at regular intervals.

I have to face an unexpected event. Can I end my sponsoring? What then happens to the project?

Sponsoring is a long-term commitment that you can end at any time, simply by requesting it. All you have to do is inform us by post at Aide et Action Suisse, 11 rue des Pâquis, 1201 Geneva or by email at infosuisse@aide-et-action.org. We will then end your sponsorship (in cases of direct debiting, we appreciate being warned before the 20th of a given month, so that your request can be taken into account straight from the following month).

Sponsored children remain at school, of course. The programme continues to run as initially planned, thanks to our sponsorship pooling system – one of the great strengths of Aide et Action – which allows us to honour the commitment we made with communities. This leaves you free to take a decision that might be otherwise difficult to bear.
