The Salvation Army – International Development Office

The Salvation Army is an international social movement with a Christian background. Through its International Development Office, the Salvation Army Switzerland implements sustainable development projects around the world.

Thanks to the Salvation Army’s international activity, we can count on strong networks in our partner countries during the planning, implementation and guidance of our projects. Our relationships with local populations, some of which go back decades, help us to implement the projects that are truly needed on the ground. Our goal is to provide the comprehensive assistance required for people to help themselves. Our aspiration is to put people at the heart of our work.

Our projects go beyond nurturing basic needs like nutrition and accommodation. With the help of our clinics, health care centres and schools, we improve people’s health and support their education. The guidance we provide in difficult living situations opens up new perspectives. Microcredit, training and education allow for sustainable increases in income. Even in disaster situations like earthquakes, tornadoes, floods or drought, the Salvation Army is involved on the front line.
