The Community of Cooperation (KoGe) is the umbrella organisation of nine Swiss member organisations with a Protestant background. We share knowledge, skills and resources and are committed to a common goal: a life in dignity for all people, regardless of gender, origin or religion.
KoGe’s programme spans 41 countries from all over the world, involving more than 150 local partner organisations delivering their work in mostly fragile and conflict-affected situations to especially vulnerable persons. Peace, justice and inclusion are at the heart of our joint programme. We are guided by the SDG 16+ framework of the “Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies”. This movement was co-founded by the Government of Switzerland. The SDG 16+ approach is in line with the DNA of the Community of Cooperation as a network of faith- and human rights-based organisations. It recognizes that targets across many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are closely inter-linked to SDG 16 “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”.
Our 2021-2024 programme is supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA).
