Who we rely on
"In order for the next generation to inhabit a world that is sustainable and secure, we urgently need to make changes towards more justice, climate and environmental protection. It motivates me that my work at SWISSAID means I can contribute to this, both here in Switzerland and in the partner countries."
Head of Development Cooperation Department
"Without our donors, we could not achieve anything. They are the backbone of SWISSAID. They deserve to be treated honestly, transparently and as equals. And that we continually woo them and inspire them with the idea of a fairer world."
Head of Marketing & Fundraising Department
"Whether in Asia, Africa or Latin America – project visits are incredibly inspiring. It is a constant reminder to me of how SWISSAID's work makes change towards a socially and ecologically sustainable future possible."
Head of Finances and Logistics Department & Member of the Executive Comitee
"I want to play my part in the change that our world needs. SWISSAID uncovers problems, gets stuck in, sows hope. It is a great privilege for me to be able to devote my life to this organisation and to the poorest people in the world."
Executive Director and Head of Department Development Policy and Media ad interim
"What motivates me in my work is the opportunity to do something meaningful and to use my skills to defend values that I consider fundamental. Of particular importance to me is the mission that underlies all our SWISSAID activities: the fight for greater social justice and against all forms of discrimination."
