Saturday Social Club
Due to popular demand, we are facilitating a Saturday Social Club on the 11th of March, to support families to find social outlets at the weekend.
This will take place at Balexert Bowling, on March 11th, from 2-4pm. You are welcome to bring your other children if you would like.
It is really important for planning purposes that we know the number of people who will be attending, so please respond to the RSVP google form below outlining who will be attending before Friday the 3rd of March. If we do not get enough registrations then we will reschedule the event. As some of our team will be there, it is very important that you register in advance.
We are happy to highlight Caritas Geneva, a non-profit association whose objective is to fight against poverty and exclusion by providing concrete assistance to people in difficulty in the canton of Geneva.Caritas grocery stores offer people on a budget, a variety of food and basic necessities at reduced prices. They are open to anyone with a legitimation card issued by a public or private social service. Nathanael has been doing a weekly internship at Caritas, as a logistics assistant, since September 2022. Martine Mennet, the manager of the Servette grocery store, testifies: “At the beginning, we didn’t know how we were going to manage the special profile of Nathanael. He is responsible for putting the goods on the shelves. It’s really good because he is becoming more and more independent, he hardly needs his job-coach anymore. He has integrated well into the team, he has even started to speak French! We are happy to seeing how a young person with specific needs can fit in. It’s a very enriching experience, for me and for the team”.
We are grateful to Martine and her team for creating an accepting and welcoming environment for Nathanael.
