Our goal is to improve the integration of immigrants in Switzerland through work and by building a community. We are convinced that a «sense of togetherness» only arises when we reach out to each other.

Find your way around your new home country

We know from experience and through many conversations: It is not always easy to find your way in a country far from home. Among the known challenges are linguistic hurdles, cultural differences, and gaining a foothold in the workplace. But we know that faith can move mountains. Those who are persistent, are patient, and have the strength to follow through, have an excellent chance at a great life in Switzerland. Personal commitment to integrating yourself into Switzerland will always have a positive effect, and be noticed by others.

The Valeriana community supports you

To make this a little easier, we have started the Valeriana community. For the community, we regularly organize trips and courses in German, art, culture, and creative workshops, as well as environmental awareness courses. A Café is also planned, in the near future, where you’ll be able to catch up with clients or other employees. In addition to this, washing machines and sewing machines will also be available in the Café. While the washing machine is running, you can talk to clients and other Valeriana employees.

Here is what our women say

Ich liebe es bei einem Kaffee mit den Kunden die gewünschten Änderungen der Näharbeiten zu besprechen. Auch wenn mein Deutsch nicht perfekt ist, tut es gut sich auszutauschen und voneinander zu lernen. Mich macht es immer besonders glücklich, wenn ich die Wünsche erfüllen kann. Valeriana passt perfekt zu mir und ich bin dankbar für die Möglichkeit.

Hatun Valeriana-Frau

Wohnungen zu reinigen hat mir schon immer Freude bereitet, da ich so für andere Menschen eine schöne und saubere Atmosphäre schaffen kann. Bei Valeriana macht mir das besonders Spass, da ich Kurse besuchen kann und mir die Community hilft, falls etwas ist. Ich mag den Austausch mit anderen Mitarbeitenden und Kunden sehr und freue mich, wenn alles noch weiter wächst und grösser wird.

Embaba Valeriana-Frau

Seit 10 Jahren lebe ich in der Schweiz. Dank Valeriana kann ich in meinem ursprünglichen Beruf als Näherin tätig sein und mir ein Nebeneinkommen verdienen. Ich schätze den Kontakt zu den Kunden und den anderen Frauen sehr. Mein Deutsch hat sich bereits verbessert und ich freue mich auf alle kommenden Ausflüge und Workshops.
