Suyana - Hope for a better future

Suyana supports people to improve their lives by themselves.
In Bolivia and Peru with its own projects, in Switzerland together with private individuals and other organisations.

BOLIVIA

Suyana works in 8 municipalities in the Bolivian departamento of La Paz. We support families, schools and communities in remote areas of the Andes. Because there are few roads, it is difficult to reach these areas and basic services are limited.

Most of the people living in the region are indigenous and survive through farming. The weather is harsh, the land is barren and people live in poverty.

PERU

Suyana works in municipalities in Peruvian department of Cusco and Puno. We support families, schools and communities in remote areas of the Andes. Because there are few roads, it is difficult to reach these areas and basic services are limited.

Most of the people living in the region are indigenous and survive through farming. The weather is harsh, the land is barren and people live in poverty.

SWITZERLAND

In Switzerland we support since the year 2009 projects off different organisations which are active in charitable work in educational or social fields. Furthermore we enable basic education and/or further training plans of private individuals.

As of the year 2013, we make it possible in the agricultural area to implement future oriented projects of various sectors. We cooperate mainly with peasant families.

Switzerland: Drought emergency

Our farmer lives in the canton of Bern, in a pre-alpine hilly area, on the border with the canton of Freiburg. He runs a farm of about 18 hectares and keeps 18 cows of the original Swiss brown cattle. Normally, the fodder base is sufficient to feed the animals. Unfortunately, the very dry periods of 2017 and 2018 have caused major yield losses. This resulted in necessary roughage purchases that earl up all their savings and put the existence of the farm at risk. With the help of Suyana a positive future is emerging.
