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 also 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 Valeriana-Employees say

I love being able to discuss sewing requests and alterations with clients over coffee. Even though my German isn't perfect, its great to be able to exchange ideas and learn from each other. I'm always extremely happy when I can fulfill the requested wishes and alterations. Valeriana is a perfect match for me and I'm grateful for the opportunity.

Hatun, Valeriana-Employee

It fills me with great joy when I can clean a home for someone, as through this I'm able to create a beautiful and clean atmosphere. At Valeriana it's an even greater pleasure, as I'm able to attend courses and if there's ever an issue the community is always there to help. I love the interaction with the other workers and clients, and am excited to see how everything will grow and become bigger.

Embaba, Valeriana-Employee

I've lived in Switzerland for 10 years. Thanks to Valeriana I'm able to work in my original profession as seamstress, and earn an income. I greatly value the contact to the clients and other ladies. My German has already improved and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming trips and workshops.
