HOII is a system designed for the non-profit organisation AOZ (Asyl Organisation Zurich). It encourages social interaction of the immigrants with the locals as a step towards integrating them in the society.

This project involves three major aspects; the swiss government, immigrants and the locals keeping in mind their individual gains and incentives. This helps with the social balance, sense of belonging and social responsibility. We hope to establish a strong relationship between three parties.

Immigrant scenario

Imagine being forced to flee your country in order to escape to safety. Refugees are people fleeing conflict or persecution. They are defined and protected in international law, and must not be expelled or returned to situations where their life and freedom are at risk.Life as a refugee can be difficult to imagine. But, for nearly 20 million people around the world, it is a terrifying reality.


In swiss, growing number of immigrants is a problem and there seemed to be a conflict in the society. After visiting the provisional housing center. we realized that just by giving them a place to live, we are not solving the problem. we have to look beyond just financial support and go deeper in the lives of these people who have just left everything behind to just seek freedom and peace.
