Time and care
We welcome offers for hands-on-mentoring/supervision/work program for our young beneficiaries who are abandoned by one or both of their parents.
Visit of the elderly or prisoners
We can arrange to pair a volunteer with one of our destitute for Christmas visits.
Our beneficiaries of education assistance need on-the-job training opportunities, preferably with Swiss owned or managed companies. This would give them exposure to Swiss work ethics and allow them to do well in the labor market.
Be a Godparent/sponsor
Be a Godparent/sponsor to an assisted student (approx. cost PHP 30’000.- p.a. for school fees, living allowance, transportation allowance, books and school uniforms).
We welcome offers by families in Switzerland who would be willing to open their homes to a young Swiss/Filipino during two to six months for them to get settled in Switzerland after having completed a vocational training in the Philippines with the support of the foundation.
Offering an Au-pair job
A family in Switzerland may want to hire one of our beneficiaries on a limited au-pair assignment.
Funding, Sponsors and Donations
SBFI relies widely on contributions made by members of the Swiss Club from its inception. The funds generated are invested in safe commercial papers. For many years, income from these investments covered annual expenditures. However the PHP 6.6million fund at today’s interest rates does not yield enough to cover minimum assistance needs.
- Interest income of the endowment fund (capital) of the foundation
- Annual donation from The Swiss Club Philippines, Inc.
- Donations from the Swiss Government
- Donations from Individuals
- Donations from fundraising activities
