About us

Our commitment to a fairer world

Bread for all is dedicated to bringing about new models of food production and economies in all regions of the world. Achieving this goal depends upon cooperation between people, the respect for human rights and a value for natural resources.

Bread for all campaigns encompass both the spiritual as well as political aspects of transitioning to these new models. A profound change in our worldview can provide the foundation for such a shift. A structural and legal framework, is also needed in order for new forms of production and nutrition to develop.

Our partners – together we are strong

Bread for all is able to transform its goals into effective action by working together with project partners from numerous countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Each of our selected partner organisations specialises in a particular topic and field, and is deeply rooted in the economic and political realities of its country. Each partnering organization therefore has the necessary expertise and ability to adapt solutions to current situations on the ground. This know-how enables it to defend the local population’s human rights including its right to food.

Community of Cooperation of Bread for all and its partner organisations

The Community of Cooperation of Bread for all and its partner organisations is a dynamic learning alliance of 11 organisations with a Protestant background in Switzerland.

Under the framework of four specialist groups, we exchange knowledge, skills, and resources. Together, we create synergies and experiment with new models and instruments of cooperation.

Drawing on our diverse perspectives, backgrounds and priorities, we work together towards a common goal: a life of dignity for all people.
