Portrait: Laurence Pian

Laurence Pian was born in Lausanne where she attended all her schooling. At the age of 20, she met the father of her four children, a man of Swedish origin.

Passionate about sports, she enjoys activities such as skiing and hiking, golf, cycling, and yoga. Laurence also likes to travel and discover the world and is interested in contemporary art and music.

During the Christmas holidays in 2004, while Laurence stayed in Switzerland, her family went to Thailand for what was meant to be a heavenly vacation. As they arrived, a huge tidal wave devastated the Asian coast and among the countless victims, two of her children were killed, Jan, 12 years old and Oscar, 8 years old.

Jan was a student at Collège Champittet and immediately after this tragedy, in a spirit of solidarity, a humanitarian project was launched in memory of these two children.

The Jan & Oscar Foundation, whose mission is building and renovating schools in Thailand, was created in the very heart of Collège Champittet. Based in Switzerland, it receives financial support from partners to cover administrative and operating costs. Thus, all donations received can be donated to the missions carried out in Thailand.

In addition, sponsorships are organized to finance the cost of school supplies and to give children in need the possibility of basic and even higher education.

Laurence Pian invests herself personally and commits to following the evolution of the funded schools, as well as the curricula of the sponsored students.

All these activities are possible thanks to the presence and work of its partners on the ground acting with the trust and control of the Foundation.

Beyond these activities, the Foundation's motto is "Our children help other children". It organizes fund raising activities and humanitarian trips with students from the French-speaking region of Thailand. Young people come back enriched, which adds to their personal development.
