Die 2. Klasse der Oberschule Vaduz verkaufte Krömle für das Einkommensförderungsprogramm in Niger
Cookies of the Oberschule Vaduz

12 goats donated

Young people from Vaduz High School support the SOS Children's Village aid project in Niger with homemade Christmas cookies.

Under the annual motto "OSV bewirkt" (OSV makes a difference), the students of the Oberschule Vaduz are to set up a charitable campaign this year. In 2b, a student brought a flyer from "SOS Children's Village Liechtenstein" to school and it quickly became clear that money was to be raised for a project in Africa.

We from SOS Children's Villages visited the students in class and presented the project to the interested young people.  With 170 francs, for example, a foot pump can be purchased in Niger to irrigate the fields and with another 30 francs a goat can be financed for a family. The goal of the class was to collect at least 200 francs.

Great commitment of the young people despite obstacles

By selling homemade cookies and fresh waffles at the Schaan Christmas market, the class wanted to earn the money. Unfortunately, due to the Corona restrictions, this idea could not be realized.

However, the students did not give up and came to school on a Saturday morning in their free time to bake over 1,500 cookies with a lot of love and patience. These were then packed into bags and sold to friends and relatives. In the end, they raised 541 Swiss francs for a water pump and 12 goats, which were handed over to SOS Children's Village by the class president Diana Santos Pinto.
