HelloI'm a divorced American woman who early retired from the United Nations over a year ago. I am really struggling with where to live now.Switzerland is lovely esp in the summer, and safe, but my kids have both left the country now, one to USA the other for a job in Romania. They have 3 passports. I only have the American passport and currently a permit B. I had a lot of social contact through work before. Now I struggle to make good friends here, although I always try to reach out. People are just not that open I find. I live in Coppet where most people are busy with their work, families or couple and feel quite lonely. I am an extrovert by nature. I am considering either moving back to the USA or possibly trying a reunification with my Italian ex boyfriend in a small town in northern Italy.Any thoughts on where is better a small city in Northern Italy, the USA or staying here? Is it easier to make friends in the USA? My french is passable, my Italian non existant. It is nice to just speak and write in English. Being retired I am on a lower income than before and it is challenging to make ends meet.I do love nature, swimming, dancing, yoga, movies and trying new things. I really like having a group of friends to meet up with.Any thoughts on this? I realise it's a personal choice but I can't quite figure it out, so thought I'd ask for your input.many kind thanks

HI all. We are selling our secondary residence at the end of this year (compromis signed ). We have no plans to buy another property in the area and will have an apartment full of stuff that we would like to find a home for. Kitchen equipment, cutlery, crockery, duvets, pillows, linen , towels etc... it has all been well used but has plenty of life left in it. If anyone knows of a local charity who could benefit from these items please let me know - I would be happy to deliver to them or they can collect at the end of September, whichever suits. Thanks in advance

My friend's 84 year old father is still in Damascus, and he realises it is really time to go. He has Swiss nationality (next to Syrian), thus he has right to social benefits (without having to claim refugee status). However, they do not offer any help finding social or cheap housing. He has never lived in Switzerland, but speaks excellent English and French. Does anyone know what kind of organisations can help him? He must find something soon after he arrives as he cannot afford expensive temporary housing.I am a Caritas volunteer at a refugee centre in Belgium by the way. I am grateful for any advice you can give.

Hi all,Can anyone suggest venues where I could raise funds for charity by selling beaded jewelry?The charity in question is the Norrie Disease Association (NDA) (registered charity based in Illinois, USA). They are working very hard to try and push forward research which may one day lead to a cure for Norrie Disease (ND). You would not know what ND is – neither did I before my son was born – so let me just say that it is a rare genetic disorder and it is one of the leading causes of deaf-blindness. Since it happens as a result of a genetic mutation, cases of ND exist in every country in the world.I have been involved with jewelry making as a hobby for many years. I have also taken part in jewelry making workshops in Créateliers. Last year I had set up a stall at the Bellevue Christmas market and it was this which made me think of using my hobby to raise funds. So now I’m wondering if there could be an opportunity to sell elsewhere as well (I mean during the other 11 months). Also, I would be donating every single penny from sales (+ part of the cost of materials as well, as my contribution) to the NDA so I’m also wondering if someone would be kind enough to not charge an exorbitant amount for the table/stall (which is sadly the case at Christmas markets).I have attached photos to show the kind of things I make. Sorry for the rubbish quality of pictures, it's not my thing :-(Thank you for any help/advice you may be able to provide!

A new campaign group has recently formed in the UK called WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign) to "seek fair transitional arrangements for all women born on or after 6th April 1951 who have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age (SPA). Hundreds of thousands of women have had significant changes imposed on them with a lack of appropriate notification. The 1995 Conservative Government’s Pension Act included plans to increase women’s SPA to 65, the same as men’s. Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI), agree with equalisation, but don’t agree with the unfair way the changes were implemented – with little/no personal notice (1995/2011 Pension Acts), faster than promised (2011 Pension Act), and no time to make alternative plans. Retirement plans have been shattered with devastating consequences." A crowdfunding exercise raised enough to pay for legal advice and barristers are currently considering potential action. A petition has been signed by more than 21,000 people since the 20th October. Yesterday it was announced that the Parliamentary Select Committee for Work and Pensions will be seeking submissions from women born in the 50's. "The Work and Pensions Committee have launched an inquiry into the new State Pension introduced in April 2016. Concerns have been raised that many of those who will be affected by the changes do not know enough about the changes or exactly what they will mean for their pensions." More details here http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/work-and-pensions-committee/news-parliament-2015/state-pension-launch-15-16/ I am sure that there are many of you (like me) who are affected by these changes. You may want to consider signing the petition and asking your family and friends to do the same herehttps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/110776 You can find more information about the campaign and read some of the heartbreaking stories about women who have been left without the money they are entitled to herehttps://www.facebook.com/WASPI-Women-Against-State-Pension-Inequality-Campaign-877054125688402/?fref=ts Please pass this information to the women you know who were born in the 50's!

Hi, I would like to either start a crafts group, or join an existing one, in geneva. The idea is simply to meet up once or twice a week and spend some time together doing whatever craft-y activity one is into. Mine is jewelry making but it could be quilting, patch-work, whatever. Each person could do whatever is their passion. I love beading but sitting around alone is kind of de-motivating. I would be happy to have it at my place for a small group (4-5 people, postcode 1203). No charge, tea/coffee supplied gladly:-) Anyone interested? M.
