The Hunger Project Switzerland

 

The Hunger Project Switzerland was founded in 1983 as an association based in Geneva. The association is denominationally and politically neutral and due to its charitable purpose has been tax-exempt since its foundation. Since November 2009 the Hunger Project Switzerland has been ZEWO-certified and thus has to meet the increased requirements of the ZEWO Foundation in dealing with donations.

 

With its income, the association financially supports the programs of the worldwide Hunger Project, which are used to overcome hunger and poverty in Africa, Latin America and South Asia. THP Switzerland mainly supports projects in Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mozambique and India.

 

The Hunger Project uses the member and patron contributions, the voluntary contributions of the partners and the other income according to the following statutes:

Volunteer active people

 

The majority of the Hunger Project’s worldwide work is done by more than 395,000 volunteers, who are highly committed to their respective regions, using their skills and time.

 

THP Switzerland is additionally supported by at least 10 volunteers, who, like the board of directors and advisory board, work on a voluntary basis.

 

This way of working with volunteers is an expression of a climate of personal responsibility, initiative and solidarity. At the same time, it contributes significantly to keeping personnel costs low.
