One Foundation, many horizons!
The Collège Champittet Foundation was created in 2010 and supports humanitarian educational projects in several countries, namely in Madagascar, Thailand, Lebanon and Switzerland
Its aim is to encourage the younger generations to commit themselves to making a better world. Collège Champittet students get involved from a very early age in the conception, planning and implementation of our humanitarian projects. Both students and collaborators travel regularly to the field to ensure the sustainability of the projects supported by the foundation.
The Foundation is recognised as a public-interest organisation and is totally independent of Collège Champittet SA, which only supports it.

The Collège Champittet Foundation was created with the goal of making an impact, both where the needs are, and here, in the minds of the younger generation who must commit themselves to a better world. For over 10 years, the Foundation has supported humanitarian educational projects in several countries, mainly in Madagascar, Lebanon, Thailand and more recently in Switzerland as well.
Our action aims to support the school created in Andrafiabe and the Children’s House in Ambanja in 2011. We work in cooperation with the Avotra Association and Father Stefano, a doctor and Capuchin priest who has been living in Madagascar for over 30 years.
Together with the Jan & Oscar Foundation, this project aims to build schools and finance scholarships in remote areas of the country.
In cooperation with the association Fair Play Sport Handicap Lausanne, this project aims to make sport accessible to young people living with a disability.
Following the tragic explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, the Collège Champittet Foundation, in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Tripoli Cosmopolis, decided to involve the school community to support education in this country affected by the crisis.
