Participants in the WWW course


«In the World Wide Women course, I was able to improve my German and boost my self-confidence. I also received a lot of important information about becoming integrated into the Swiss job market. The MinQ mentoring programme was helpful as well: my mentor talked to me about my job prospects, helped me write job applications and practised job interviews with me. In August 2016, I got a job as a project coordinator at a large company. My co-workers are surprised at how quickly and easily I have settled in.» Participant in the WWW course

Annual Report 2020

It could have been our year as we were all set to celebrate our anniversary with you. In 1980, forty years agin, K5 opened its doors for the very first time. since then we have held hundreds of courses, welcomed thousands of participants from dozens of countries and accompanied them on their way to a self-determined life in Basel. We played, sang and laughed innumberable times in our day care centre. At our intercultural encounter events, friends for life were made and important networks for careers were established. We wanted to celebrate all these moments, achievements, and experiences together with all of you in 2020.
