A Cooperative Project between the Lyoness Community Switzerland and the Child & Family Foundation Association.

Project Description

The Sunnehus Frutigen Home for Children and Adolescents is a crisis intervention centre that cares for children and young people with a difficult family background. The aim is to work together with the kids and their families to bring them back together in the long run.

Therefore days like these, away from their daily routine, are a welcome change of pace for these children, adolescents, and their families: they provide them with a break from their problems and are meant to help these families grow close again.

For this reason the Lyoness Community in Switzerland and the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Association made a joint decision to organize a trip for the 20 children, their caregivers and some of their family members.

The memorable day began at the Wilderswil train station and continued on the cog railway to Schyniger Platte. A tour in the alpine garden and group games were followed by a leisurely lunch at the barbeque area below the summit train station. Strengthened and motivated they then boarded the train back to Wilderswil. The entire team was so inspired by the day out and the barbeque together, that they even came up with the idea to build a campfire and barbeque area at Sunnehus Frutigen Home. This way the kids and their families can enjoy a campfire atmosphere at the children's home as well.

All in all it was a day full of wonderful moments both for the kids, their caregivers and all those who assisted in turning this project into reality.

Project Goals

The aim of this project was to organize a day trip for 20 children and adolescents from the Sunnehus Frutigen Home for Children and Adolescents along with some of their family members. We wanted to help them forget their difficulties and grow closer.
