Water Management

In the remote rural communities of the highlands of Bolivia, where the climatic conditions are rough and the water resources are scarce, safe drinking water should be a reality. However, water sources are often used by animals or are contaminated by waste and chemical fertilizers. This has a negative impact on water quality: Contamination of drinking water is the cause of many diseases.

Auxiliary veterinaries

Farm animals are for the rural population of Bolivia of major importance and the income from livestock is their livelihood. Unfortunately, there is often a lack of knowledge about how animal health can be improved and diseases prevented. In an emergency, it takes too long for a veterinarian from the city to reach the farms. The auxiliary veterinarians already live in the remote areas where they are needed and thus better the medical care for animals. They are trained in a programme that Suyana Foundation has launched together with a local University. Project Duration: 2017 - 2019

My lovely school

The schools in Bolivia's rural areas are very simple. Often they make a bleak impression which has a negative impact on the motivation and performance of many students and teachers. Through the Suyana school project the schools are improved by simple means. Teachers, students, parents and authorities cooperate and enhance the quality of the schools with their own work and resources. This increases the learning motivation, the well-being of the children and thus also their future prospects.

„I live well thanks to my own efforts”

The families in the remote rural areas of Boliva usually live in extreme poverty in precarious conditions. The yield of their small farms is barely enough to cover their own needs. As there is rarely any excess left to be sold to generate income for new investments or to close the poverty gap. Through the family project, the families improve their homes and production on their own initiative, work and resources. The result is a healthier and more dignified life.

Children without Caries

People living in the rural villages in the Bolivian highlands do not have the chance to see a dentist when they have toothache as there are no dental services in isolated areas. People do not have any idea about how important it is to keep their teeth clean and that poor dental hygiene can have a disastrous impact on their general health. From a very young age villagers suffer from caries and gum disease, which cause pain and may lead to infections. Thanks to the Suyana Foundation mobile dentists each villager can receive the treatment they need.

Farming Experts "Satiri"

The population in the remote villages in Bolivia makes a living with farming. The climatic conditions are harsh, the meagre soil only allows a poor harvest and people live in humble conditions. The local farming experts, trained by the Foundation Suyana, show the families simple measures to improve their living conditions with their own efforts.

Marketing Classes

For many young adults in the remote regions of Peru, there is no possibility to complete a vocational school or academic studies. The young people in these areas often have good ideas to improve their living conditions, but without professional training they lack the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to realise their ideas. Under these circumstances, it is difficult for people to find a way out of poverty.

New construction causes high costs

A farming family in the canton of St. Gallen lives mainly from dairy farming. They own their own land but also have leased land. From a retired neighbour they have leased eight hectares of land where there is also a stable for the young cattle. Out of the blue, the farmer receives a letter from the neighbour saying that unless this stable is cleared the lease contract will not be extended.

Damage caused by heavy storm

A young farmer from the Rhine Valley is having lunch with his mother when the storm Burglind hits the farm. The heavy wind is frightening, it hisses and howls around the house and causes trees nearly to break. But it gets worse, parts of the roof loosen and fall into the yard. Once the storm is over the full damage becomes clear: One third of the roof was swept away!

Family of six urgently needs more space

A peasant family lives in an old and tiny farmhouse, which is a listed building and located in the Jura protection zone of the canton of Solothurn. Since there are not enough bedrooms, the two younger children have to sleep with the parents. Even the father of the man, who has a right of abode, lives under the same roof. These conditions are very stressful and the farmers would like to build a new house. But despite the cost-effective variant, their funds are not enough.

A farm and its inhabitants are endangered

When a farmer builds a new stable, he is usually heavily in debt. But when there is a divorce ahead, the question quickly arises as to whether the farm has a chance of survival or not. This is what happens to a farmer in the region of Thun. After high investments on the farm, his wife filed for divorce and the farmer is in big worries.

How do I implement a farm shop?

Farmers that sell high-quality products from their farm, get more money for their products. What do you have to consider in order to run a farm shop profitably? Ms. Dr. Patricia Frey made a video-movie where she asks successful shop owners to pass their experiences to others. This includes the bad experiences too. A brilliant idea, if it wasn’t for the high production costs.

Information Centre for Dementia

Margrit Raimann from the “Wiitsicht” Centre explains, “Every day at the Wiitsicht Centre we see relatives that need advice on caring for a loved one with dementia. There is a huge need and demand for information about dementia and what to do when a crisis arises.” To meet these needs we have set up a Dementia Resources Unit but if we do not receive funding we will not be able to go ahead with this project that is so important for the family and their loved one.
