Funding goals

  1. Stage 1:

    40.000 CHF

    5% funded

    We remain on track

    Once this stage has been reached, we will be able to maintain the existing basic service, optimize it and make it better known. We have already invested a lot of passion, patience and time in building the website. After all, running a website as complex as inkluso.ch is cost-intensive.

    To enable people from the French and Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland to use the platform, inkluso.ch will also be made available in French and Italian. We also want to improve the user experience and need to test the usability. Based on the results, our webmaster will implement the optimizations. Finally, flyers and brochures will be printed and sent out to promote the project to organizations, institutions and the general public.

  2. Stage 2:

    55.000 CHF

    0% funded

    Going in deep

    Once this stage has been reached, we can begin to further expand the existing services. In order to make it easier for those offering as well as those looking for jobs to find each other, the two-way exchange will be improved: in the job section, refugees and migrants will be given the opportunity to upload their CVs. This is a valuable opportunity for refugees looking for a job to present themselves to potential employers. Employers who want to hire a refugee can also find them more easily.

    The housing section will be further developed according to the same principle: Refugees post an ad that they are looking for an apartment and landlords or shared apartments can find a person more quickly whom they can contact directly.

    In addition, the chat function will be further developed. We can also obtain expert knowledge that will help us to win over employers and apartment renters for the project.

  3. Stage 3:

    70.000 CHF

    0% funded

    Promoting sustainability

    Once this stage has been reached, we can set about expanding the sections. We want to develop a "Marketplace" section. There, users can advertise all kinds of free things. From furniture to kitchen appliances, from baby clothes to cell phones. What is no longer needed or wanted will surely find a new owner there. This is not only socially sustainable, since many people hardly have the money to buy everyday items, but also ecologically sustainable. We will develop the marketplace in such a way that the exchange can take place very simply, directly and without a middle man or middle woman.

  4. Finish Stage:

    85.000 CHF

    0% funded

    Closing the circle

    Once the last stage is reached, we can add a "course directory" to our services. In this directory, we will list all relevant courses from which refugees and migrants could benefit, such as language courses, PC courses, sports courses or courses at universities. With the directory, we simplify the search for refugees and migrants and thus access to services and institutions.

inkluso is a joint project by refugees and locals in Switzerland. We are committed to support each other across cultural boundaries so that everyone can develop their talents and potential for the good of society. With the online platform inkluso.ch, we want to facilitate the social inclusion of refugees or migrants in Switzerland and give them a piece of independence.

The fact is that often only one social contact makes the difference. Personal prospects in Switzerland depend to a large extent on social networking. A hint, an acquaintance or a recommendation can move mountains in everyday life as well as on the job and housing market.
The platform is designed to cover the basic needs: social contacts, housing and work. The centerpiece of inkluso.ch is the social contacts section: there, refugees and migrants can meet each other in an uncomplicated way and establish contact with locals: Learning languages, writing applications or cooking together - the list of activities is diverse. The main thing is that an exchange takes place.

The housing section enables migrants and refugees to find rental apartments whose landlords are generally willing to rent their properties to migrants and refugees. Locals, in turn, can use the platform to rent out an apartment or a room in a shared apartment specifically for migrants and refugees.

In the work section, employers can recruit workers and publish job offers for migrants and refugees.
A promising future depends to a large extent on social networking. Especially newly arrived people, who have not yet established relationships here and are also confronted with language and cultural barriers, do not always find this access to communities easy. At the same time, the will to meet is often not the problem. In our modern society, however, there are hardly any opportunities and meeting places to establish contacts outside our bubble.

In addition, migrants and refugees are heavily dependent on third parties to provide them with the necessary support and information. This dependence and lack of independence can be very stressful. Many want to, and in some cases have to, take matters into their own hands. Furthermore, communities and organizations are increasingly overburdened and lack the capacity to fully support those concerned.

That is why we have created inkluso.ch. It offers interested people the opportunity to seek or offer support in everyday matters such as finding an apartment or a job, learning German or leisure activities. Thanks to quick registration, committed locals, refugees and migrants can thus easily overcome cultural borders.
The emergence of digital meeting spaces has ensured that people can network better and more easily. Nevertheless, there are hardly any offers that specifically include refugees and migrants. This is exactly the gap that inkluso.ch aims to fill.

In order to maintain and develop our platform, which we have built up with a lot of passion; to expand the offers and make it more user-friendly, to create awareness among employers and landlords and to inspire even more people to register, we need your support. Your donation, no matter how much, makes it possible to build bridges between people who want to help and people who are looking for help.

Thank you so much!
Verein für soziale Inklusion
Verein für soziale Inklusion
Zürich, CH

The association for social inclusion (german: Verein für soziale Inklusion) was founded in June 2018 together by refugees and Swiss people in Zurich. Its purpose is to bridge cultural, linguistic and mental gaps between refugees/migrants and locals and to reduce prejudices and fear of contact. Among the initiators are refugees who have created the association for social inclusion out of their own experiences.

We focus on low-threshold, free services that are easily accessible for people with migration and/or refugee experience as well as for locals. We are impartial in terms of political, religious and other affiliations.

Our vision is a world where all people have a place where they feel at home. We are all volunteers in this project and do not earn any money with it.
