Helvetas has been deeply committed to development cooperation in Eastern and Southeast Europe since the early 1990s – initially under the name ‘Intercooperation,’ and later as HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation. We identify with people’s hopes, aspirations and worries. Most of our 145 staff members are from the region.
