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 children’s rights organization, Save the Children, which is committed to helping disadvantaged children in crisis and conflict regions around the world.
The effects of the war in Ukraine combined with the climate crisis and the Corona pandemic have dramatically worsened the situation for disadvantaged children and families worldwide. Children suffer particularly: around 5.7 million children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition and fear for their future.
Save the Children aims to give these children a healthy start in life and thus the chance of a future. In the countries and territories concerned, they distribute food packages, provide medical care and support families in building sustainable sources of income. In addition, Save the Children is also actively engaged at the political level for comprehensive measures and sustainable solutions.
International classical music prize for young talents between 6 and 17 years. The winner of the Swiss Charity Award will perform at the concert.
