Destination Unknown Campaign
Last month ISS Switzerland joined the international campaign Destination Unknown to contribute to making visible the millions of children who are on the move nowadays.
For many years ISS Switzerland has been bringing its support and expertise in the protection and reintegration in professional and social life of vulnerable children on the move in Switzerland and in West Africa.
Agro-ecology in the service of communities and their children
Since three years, the WAN has launched community gardening projects in some participating countries. These projects are aimed at improving livelihoods in rural areas, where children and young people often leave because of exploitation or simply in search of better prospects. This year in Ghana, these projects have been the turning point of agro-ecology, to empower small farmers cope in the face of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
New forms of reproduction
More and more couples turn to surrogacy throughout the world to satisfy their desire to have a child. This practice being illegal in Switzerland, Swiss couples go to foreign countries where surrogacy is authorized, opening the door to different types of abuses and risks for the children. The ISS international network sends out a call for action.
