The majority of our profits are donated to finance humanitarian and solidarity projects in Switzerland and all over the world.

Being a caterer, L’Effet Papillon is affected by nutrition and access to drinking water problems. That’s why we only support nutrition help and access to drinking water solidarity projects.

Every 6 months, we meet with our partners, our volunteers and our team to select 3 projects. Then, our customers decide which project beyond the 3 preselected ones they want to support. The profit from their meal will be donated to finance this project.

We are currently looking for the 3 new projects to help for the next 6 months! Are you an association, a foundation or an NGO based in Switzerland and do you wish to submit a project to L’Effet Papillon?

Geneva, Switzerland  

Goal : to distribute meals to people in need in Geneva 

The Montbrillant Garden project is part of the Carrefour-Rue association. It is located at rue de Montbrillant n ° 3, 1201 Geneva. The Jardin de Montbrillant opens its doors from Tuesday to Friday from 11:30 am and Saturday from 12h. The idea of the project is to distribute free lunches throughout the year for people without resources. The place hosts around 250 people per day and 70,000 meals a year and is run by volunteers from all walks of life.

Carrefour-Rue was created in 1986 by Noël Constant, president and founder. The organisation offers alternatives to traditional or official responses, fighting against exclusion by creating places to welcome and offer support, meals, accommodation and activities to people in need in Geneva. Their goal is to make those people as autonomous as possible, to make sure they take back control over their lives and become actors instead of searchers for help.

CHF 3.- finance a meal for another person in need in Geneva.
