The Swiss Charity Concert is a benefit concert in aid of the children’s rights organisation Save the Children, supported by the management consultancy Kearney. In 2011, the concert series was launched by management consultant, conductor and pianist Victor Dijon de Monteton. The Swiss Charity Award presented in this context promotes young, talented musicians and offers them the opportunity to perform at the concert.
By attending the concert, you support the world’s leading independent organization for children, Save the Children, which is committed to helping disadvantaged children in crisis and conflict regions around the world.
Poverty, war and violence are still the main reasons that 57 million children in primary and 69 million secondary school age children worldwide do not go to school or drop out early.
Save the Children has set itself the goal of giving these children and young people a future and ensuring full access to education and alphabetization for all children and adolescents worldwide. In the countries and territories concerned, they equip classrooms, provide teaching materials and train teachers. In addition, Save the Children is also actively engaged at the political level for comprehensive measures and sustainable solutions.
