How we work

Brücke · Le pont is guided by human rights, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). We promote global solidarity and social justice and advocate gender equality. We cultivate collaborative cooperation with our partner organisations characterised by mutual respect and appreciation. We are committed to strengthening people’s self-determination and acting in an impact-oriented manner.

... and why

The high level of poverty, the unequal distribution of wealth and income and the increasing precarity of work worldwide show the consistent need for «decent work». With its systemic and integral approach and over 65 years of programme experience, Brücke · Le pont is effective in helping people improve their working and living conditions and thus contributes to sustainable development.
