    About HELVETAS Swiss IntercooperationHELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is a development organisation anchored in Switzerland. Our vision is a just world in which all men and women determine the course of their lives in dignity and security, using environmental resources in a sustainable manner. As a politically and denomination-ally neutral association, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is supported by around 100,000 members and sponsors, as well as 12 regional groups of volunteers. Our team comprises more than 1210 local and 55 international employees (mainly Swiss) engaged in 33 partner countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. A total of 143 men and women work at the Berne and Zurich offices as well as at the Lausanne and Balerna branch of-fices. They co-ordinate development projects, offer advisory services to governmental and non-governmental organisations, and raise awareness about issues faced by people in developing countries and possible solutions.

    Major funders of HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation are the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the State Secretariat for the Economy SECO, the Liechtenstein Development Service, the British Department for International Development (DFID), EuropeAid and private donors.

    How HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation worksThe objective of HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation is to help create a fairer world in which the basic needs of all men and women are satisfied and human rights are protected. In order to achieve this goal, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation works at five levels:

    Projects. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation develops, supports and implements concrete actions thorugh its projects in the field. These projects are implemented with strong local ownership and participation that guarantee their sustainability. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation supports its partners to build their own capacities to deliver good development outcomes through the work that they do and also trains local authorities to fulfill their responsibilities to ensure continuity of the work.

    Advisory Services. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation offers a multidisciplinary team of develop-ment experts. These experts advise private, civil society, government and multilateral organisations regarding their development projects. They train specialists and foster expertise, contributing their skills and knowledge to international networks.

    Information and awareness raising. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation informs the Swiss public about its own work and raises awareness concerning global injustice and the necessity to stand up for the needs of the worlds poorest, either through political participation or donations.

    Fair Trade. In its projects and together with the private sector partners, HELVETAS Swiss Inter-cooperation promotes Fair Trade of products such as cocoa, rice and cotton. Its own FairShop sells organic and ethical goods from developing countries.

    Development politics. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation takes a public stance on develop-ment issues within Switzerland and internationally, through its statements, participation in global networks, such as Alliance2015, petitions and as a member of Alliance Sud, the political lobbying body of the major Swiss aid agencies.

    Together for a better worldFarming families making careful use of natural resources and benefiting from new market oppor-tunities. Young people attending schools and vocational course that equip e them for a better life. Small and medium-sized companies that are rooted in their social context. All of these lay the foundations for development. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation helps improve peoples livelihoods in 33 partner countries. Our strategy 2013 to17 places a clear emphasis on removing the barri-ers to development. While maintaining our commitment to providing access to water, we shall further focus on vocational training and fair markets. We promote preventive measures that help marginalised and vulnerable people to be better prepared for cyclones, floods and droughts, and to mitigate the effects of climate change. In tandem with concrete actions at , the grassroots level, HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation advocates for policies and actions for poverty erradication. We strengthen the civil society, and support public actors who share our vision, to actively con-tribute to their countrys development.
