Swiss Sponsorship for Mountain Communities

swiss mountain communities stampThe notion of solidarity between mountain and valley has been paramount for 75 years, with funds being channelled into narrowing the gap between the more prosperous and economically disadvantaged areas of Switzerland.As a result, the mountain regions will continue to be culti- vated, inhabited and preserved. In 1940 it was this feeling of solidarity between “mountain and valley” that led to the foundation of the “Schweizer Patenschaft für Bergge- meinden” (Swiss Sponsorship for Mountain Communities) and has been the touchstone for its activities ever since.

The association’s primary objective is to enable mountain regions to be preserved, thrive economically and remain habitable. It does this by providing project-based aid to less affluent communities, cooper- atives and corporations.
