Save the Children has been active in Switzerland since 2006. The organisation has developed continually since then.
Save the Children became an accredited partner of Swiss Solidarity. This allows us to do even more to help children in humanitarian crisis situations in the future.
At the annual international congress for members of Save the Children, Save the Children Switzerland was accepted as the 29th full member. With its full membership, Save the Children Switzerland can play an active role in developing the strategy of the international network.
The team at Save the Children Switzerland grows to include fourteen people as of October 2013. The headquarters moves to new offices in Zurich West.
Save the Children Switzerland receives the Zewo seal of approval, which guarantees the targeted, efficient and effective use of donations.
Save the Children welcomes its 15,000th Child Guardian. More and more Swiss people are working with Save the Children for children in Switzerland and around the world. Projects are supported in Nicaragua, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia and DR Congo.
Donations exceed CHF 5 million. Projects are fully or partially funded in Brazil, Colombia, Honduras, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, DR Congo, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Save the Children Switzerland is established.
