Where and How We Work

Where we work

Helvetas helps people in some thirty different countries to actively improve their living conditions. Find out more about our work in each of these countries.

Our Working Principles and Approaches

We strive for a fairer world in which everyone can fulfill their basic needs. We support people in taking charge of improving their livelihoods sustainably.


Sustainable development only works within the right policy framework. Helvetas advocates for dialog with political decision-makers.

Our Topics

Skills Development and Education

Lack of education perpetuates inequality because poor countries cannot compete economically without a skilled workforce.

Sustainable and Inclusive Economies

Economic growth does not always benefit the poor and poverty is bad for growth. We need to make a proactive effort to break this vicious cycle.

Gender and Social Equity

Helvetas makes sure that our work actively and meaningfully includes and supports the most disadvantaged groups.

The most vulnerable communities of the world suffer from dirty water.. Every year, we support up to 500,000 people in getting access to clean drinking water and sanitary facilities.

Governance and Peace

In many countries where we work, men and women are unable to claim their rights and participate actively in decision-making processes.

About the Helvetas country program in Mozambique

Helvetas Mozambique is part of a network of independent development organizations.

Helvetas also provides emergency response after disasters.

Helvetas - a partner for true change
Truly changing lives
Change takes place where people have decided to break new ground. Teófilo Caraballo, for example. He made it possible for his family to drink clean water from their own tap.
