Founded in 1981 by a doctor, Vivamos Mejor is a privately owned and Swiss-based foundation. Our headquarters is in Bern and we have a branch office in Zurich. We are not affiliated with any political groups or religions and we are a ZEWO-certified, tax-exempt non-profit organization. We work primarily in long-term developmental collaborations and we also actively give humanitarian aid when catastrophic events occur in our project areas.
Vivamos Mejor, as a politically and religiously neutral organisation, promotes equal opportunities, transparency, fairness, and non-discrimination. We provide aid to people regardless of where they come from, their religion, or political affiliation. We promote equal rights and participation of all in society. We respect cultural values, discuss matters on an equal footing, and are reliable.
