"Accessible holidays for all"
Denk an mich provides disabled access to Swiss Youth Hostels
With this objective and motto the Denk an mich Foundation and Swiss Youth Hostels (SYH) are launching a cooperation in the field of barrier–free tourism and are joining forces to make the full range of services from Swiss Youth Hostels – from the provision of information on the internet to the hostels themselves – a barrier-free experience. The project will span three years and is intended to have a signalling effect in the Swiss tourism sector.
For many people, holidays are the highlight of the year. But what about those in this country who suffer from disability, and for whom a holiday is often little more than dream? For these people, there is the Denk an mich Foundation – now in its 45th year. The subsidiary support from the foundation enables the realisation of numerous summer camps that benefit over 12,000 people every year.
Alongside the core business – holiday and leisure experiences for people with disabilities – the Denk an mich Foundation supports specific projects that are aimed at removing the barriers between people with and without disabilities and thereby promoting integration and solidarity.
