The association « Ali Baba and You »

« Ali Baba and You» is an association whose primary goal is to help young adults who are encountering social difficulties in their personal or professional life.

Adolescents and young adults come to the “Refreshment Stall des Petits Lacs” for shorter or longer stays.

The stay at the refreshment stall creates a break from family and friends, temporarily taking the youngster out of his usual comfort zone and obliging him to rely on his own inner resources.

Cut off from usual daily life and from society’s familiar rhythms, he lives a spartan existence in a community where access to the usual forms of entertainment is at a minimum.

Social integration and group dynamics are promoted mainly through participation in daily chores.

The association collaborates with the legal authorities of Switzerland that rule on penal and disciplinary sentences.

“Ali Baba and You” has also developed a programme called “Pied à l’étrier”, which literally means “your foot in the stirrup” and may be loosely translated as “In the saddle”. This is a voluntary programme, which has been put in place for some of the young people working at the Refreshment Stall of Les Petits Lacs to help them learn how to integrate professional work and its requirements into their lives. The goal is to put them in situations that come as close as possible to active professional employment so that they can develop the skills and standards necessary for being able to successfully earn a living.

“Ali Baba and You” is a non-profit organization. All profits from any of our activities and enterprises go directly towards the financing of social programmes.

Continuity Switzerland – India

The association “Ali Baba and You” remains active during the European winter by organizing different social projects in India. According to the assessment they receive about their stay in the mountains as well as personal development, there is a possibility for some young people to travel to India and get involved in on-going social projects there.

The aim of such an experience is to build on the autonomy acquired during their stay in the mountains, and to promote further social and professional integration and ease.
