Community of Cooperation (KoGe)

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.

Our Programme:
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”.
