The VSF-Suisse Association

VSF-Suisse was founded in 1988 by students of veterinary medicine at the University of Berne. With a great vision and thousands of volunteer hours, it managed to implement the first two projects in 1996 in what is now South Sudan. In the same year, a professionally managed office was opened in Berne. Today VSF-Suisse has 200 members and about 150 local staff in five Country Offices as well as ten staff at the Head Office. Together, they manage an average of 40-50 projects per year in Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Somalia, South Sudan and Togo. VSF-Suisse is a partner organization of Swiss Solidarity, member of the VSF International network and is Zewo-certified in Switzerland.
