Allianz Chance+

Advocating for equitable educational opportunities

Research shows that children with a migration background in Switzerland have one third of the opportunities of Swiss children to pass the hurdle of achieving a higher level tertiary education. Their families usually have limited ability to support them due to lower education levels, limited language skills and inability to afford private tutoring.

Since 2018 the ChagALL team have made significant contributions to enabling talented and motivated youngsters with a migration background –especially those from underprivileged families- to get off to a good start on their higher education. Dalyan supported ChagAll and the later ChagAll Initiative Fund with the aim to facilitate similar programs throughout Switzerland.

As a next step "Alliance Chance+", a platform for a strong civil society network has emerged. The team is committed to sustainably reducing structural inequalities of opportunity in education through advocacy, political awareness-raising, research and pilot projects.
