Différences Solidaires is an association recognised as being of public utility by the canton of Fribourg. Founded in 2009, it responds to the needs of people with disabilities, in order to help them find solutions for the organisation of summer and winter outdoor sports activities.
The members of the committee are committed to making skiing, hiking and off-roading activities accessible to people with disabilities and in particular to those with reduced mobility. Thanks to the support of numerous sponsors, donors and volunteers, Différences Solidaires has, over the years, developed an important network which enables it to provide more than 200 days of sporting activities per year throughout the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
The specificity of our association is to be itinerant. We can thus respond to the desires and needs of our beneficiaries. We can go wherever you want, as long as the accessibility and the place allow a recognized and safe practice of the activities.
In addition, in order to support families and institutions that request it, we provide people with the necessary training and specific equipment for these outdoor activities.
Depending on our availability, we can offer several types of services adapted to your needs and study any particular request with you. Furthermore, we collaborate with any organisation wishing to develop sports projects for people with disabilities.
We can organise on request :
– Camps for specialised institutions
– Services for families or institutions over one or more days
– Training courses for piloting equipment (in collaboration with our partners)
– The provision of equipment for one or more days (according to financial conditions defined beforehand) AND only for people with a certification recognised by Différences Solidaires.
All the people who supervise our activities are aware of the disability field. They also have additional skills in adapted sports activities (dualski pilot, tandemski, Cimgo…) or are trained by us in the specific activities of our association. We call upon either professionals or volunteers who are ready to commit themselves to share a little of their time.
