«We are committed to helping build a society where people from different cultures live together and which is based on mutual respect, a sense of shared responsibility, cooperation and fundamental democratic rights.» From K5’s mission statement
«In the World Wide Women course, I was able to improve my German and boost my self-confidence. I also received a lot of important information about becoming integrated into the Swiss job market. The MinQ mentoring programme was helpful as well: my mentor talked to me about my job prospects, helped me write job applications and practised job interviews with me. In August 2016, I got a job as a project coordinator at a large company. My co-workers are surprised at how quickly and easily I have settled in.» Participant in the WWW course from February to June 2016
Annual Report 2018
2018 was a multifaceted and successful year for K5: our most intensive course format Deutsch kompakt prepared 606 participants for the Swiss job market. 38 employees welcomed nearly 600 new children in 23 language. With the two pilot projects "Safe room at the K5 child care" and "K5 Learning centre", we reacted to the need's of our target group. You'll find more information in our current annual report (in German).
K5 in the media. We are always pleased when K5's courses, childcare programme and cevents are covered in the media. Most recently the Gundeldinger Zeitung reported on the women's breakfast in January 2017 and on K5’s mentoring programme for immigrant women who have good qualifications in December 2016.
