50 Years Together: The COOPI commitment

Our engagement is rooted and developed through the promotion of international solidarity and humanitarian values in Switzerland.

COOPI Suisse was born thanks to the active engagement and strong motivation of some residents in Ticino, who developed a relationship with the organization through COOPI in Italy. COOPI Suisse operates autonomously in Switzerland for the development and implementation of campaigns. We raise awareness and collect funds to support COOPI projects in the world, through relations with different stakeholders, such as supporters, activists and civil society, considering institutional relations with main international cooperation organizations in Switzerland.
