Social project in Peru: childcare center in Cusco
TEXAID raises funds for charity by selling textiles. The money goes towards social projects in Switzerland and abroad.
The textile recycling organisation and Grenchen-Bettlach Kolping association have been working together ever since TEXAID first started collecting old clothing. The Kolping association used to carry out street collections on behalf of TEXAID. Today, there are around 15 TEXAID containers in Grenchen and in Bettlach for collections in favour of the local Kolping association. Thanks to the money received from TEXAID, as well as donations from its members and from funeral and parish collections, the Kolping association is able to support the childcare center run by the “Urpi Wasi” foundation in Peru.
