WHAT WE DO

IN FIRST LINE AGAINST POVERTY

For its activities in Switzerland, COOPI Suisse actively participates among the local network of people and associations concerning issues of international cooperation. In this way, one contributes to create local opportunities for citizens and institutions to understand the problems that afflict developing countries, to understand what is happening in the rest of the world thanks to the direct testimonies of COOPI Suisse, to be involved in this project of change and to build together a culture of solidarity.

In developmental and in emergency situations. COOPI operates in contexts characterized by extreme poverty and socio-political or environmental fragility thanks to an approach that links interventions in emergency situations with the rehabilitation and development of the communities. In this way we aim to provide a sustainable response in the long run, ensuring continuity, among security, humanitarian assistance and development.
