SOLIDAR SUISSE

Solidar Suisse is a Swiss non-profit organisation that fights globally for decent work and democratic participation with globally over 50 projects, and also conducts awareness-raising campaigns in Switzerland.

Our motivation, our vision
All over the world, 1.5 billion people live and work in precarious conditions. If this is to change for the better, they all need to earn a living wage. Their fundamental rights must be respected. They must be empowered to participate in democratic processes. Industrialised countries need to re-think their business practices and economic policies. We envision a world with decent work, social justice and sustainable livelihoods and one free of poverty, where all people are able to exercise their right to an independent life in dignity.

Our projects in developing and emerging countries
Solidar Suisse is committed to decent work and democratic participation in the poorest countries of Africa and Latin America, as well as in threshold countries of Eastern Europe and in China. We also provide disaster relief and humanitarian aid.

Our campaigns in Switzerland
Solidar Suisse and its innovative campaigns raise public awareness of how our consumerism affects people in developing countries.

Our expertise
The Solidar Suisse development programme enjoys the support of SDC, the Swiss government Agency for Development and Cooperation. Solidar Suisse has been certified by ZEWO, the Swiss fundraising monitoring agency, which ensures the economic and effective use of your donation for its intended purpose. 

Our network
Solidar Suisse is founded by Swiss labour unions and the Social-Democratic Party of Switzerland. Solidar Suisse is a member of the European Solidar Network which includes over 50 relief agencies and non-governmental organisations.
