Switzerland: Intergenerational Park
Mission Bambini has started in Morbio, in Switzerland, the project “Intergenerational park” with the intention to make a playground inside the retirement home managed by the San Rocco Foundation.
The integration of early childhood services inside the retirement home allows to accommodate children in spaces dedicated to them, offering at the same time the opportunity of interaction both with the residents and the visitors of the house, educating them to a dimension of community and care which families, always less numerous, can no longer offer.

Bangladesh and India: Pink scholarships
Through Mission Bambini Switzerland is possible to activate a “pink scholarship”: to support deserving or poor girls in the final phase of their studies, helping them to reach the diploma, a professional qualification or the degree. Now it is possible to have a pink scholarship in Bangladesh and India. Donors are receiving periodical updates on the progress of the girls, in order to follow, step by step, the phases of this important social change.
In many countries, access to education is still a daily challenge for millions of children. Thanks to individual Long-Distance Sponsorships (each donor is linked to a single child), Mission Bambini Switzerland guarantees children the right to a good education every year, by means of covering schooling costs: entry fees, books and uniforms.
It has been estimated that every year 1 million children are born with congenital heart disease all over the world. Around 80% are born in a poor country: half of them won’t survive beyond the first year due to lack of medical help and surgical facilities; the others will suffer serious growth problems and difficulties in their psychosomatic development. Through “Children’s Heart” Program Mission Bambini Switzerland supports humanitarian missions of medical volunteers or supports local hospitals in the following Countries: Brazil, Cambodia, Kenya, Romania, Zimbabwe.
