Care for Outsiders: Life at C.A.R.E. in Geneva (2006)

It is an astonishing fact that in large Swiss cities, some 20% of the population lives below the poverty level. The film follows some of this population that society has left behind, those abandoned due to their neediness. The organization C.A.R.E. (Caritas-Accueil-Rencontres-Echanges et Réinsertion sociale) in Geneva offers artistic activities, training and friendship that enables its visitors to regain self-respect and a sense of joy in life.

For some of society's outsiders, C.A.R.E. offers an end to the downward spiral of social isolation, broken relationships, unemployment, drugs and poverty and a stepping stone for reintegration into society.

In French with English Subtitles.
